A problem with a compass error that won't go away is often caused by a disconnected compass - usually a broken wire close to the compass sensor.Went to fly my phantom and keep getting a compass error and can’t fly. Tried the compass calibration at least 5 times. Turned off drone and tx many times. Still having compass issue. Maybe I messed something up.
The problem is probably a break in one of the very fine wires right at the sensor which is down in one leg.Looks like I have a bad compass. Not sure how a crash could cause this since it’s covered.
The first time I replaced a compass, I broke a wire installing it.I can't get the new compass to calibrate. I have to click on calibrate many times before I see the pic of the quad on the app. I turn the quad counter clockwise but it never tells me to turn the quad up. All connections on the board are good. Checked and rechecked. Not sure to try next.
