    How do I know it's successful? I see the manual talks about it blinking yellow or green as though it failed but on other you tube videos it blinks and they still fly it.

    I look at the mod values under sensors. You want something around 1400.
    Then with aircraft on, but engines off. Look at the the plane icons orientation on the map in go app.
    If the plane icons actual orientation matches the map. Then compass is good.

    After a successful calibration, the aircraft should blink normally as if you never calibrated. If it is doing something else, something is wrong.

    The "blink normally" light sequence depends on if you are in Phantom mode of Naza M mode.

    Thanks. So if the lights blink yellow or green it doesn't mean that it's failed.
