    Hi Everybody,

    Lets discuss about the Compass error.

    Why happens this so often?
    How can we prevent this?
    Are there any solutions?

    When i fly with my little Syma Drone i never get any problems with the compass..

    Most Phantom users never see a compass error unless they put their Phantom on their car roof or try to launch from reinforced concrete.
    Just get a good calibration and stick with it and avoid launching from areas close to cars, structural steel, buried pipes and cables and reinforced concrete.
