    "Compass noise is too high If the problem doesn't go away after restart please contact DJI support"
    This is the message i got today when i started my PH3 advanced. I didn't do any recent updates and flew fine last 10 times. The message comes up every time i try to start it and the motors won't start. Calibration was done yesterday. My firmware is 1.8

    Did you do an IMU calibration? That will sometimes reset the compass.

    Yeah I have the same issue. The only solution for me is to switch to non gps mode. I can then cut the motors on and fly. Still don't go up as high as I use to. Maybe firmware update? Idk. Someone help please

    May need compass calibration in an area free of any metal. Make sure you don't have metal on either, or cellphone on you as you calibrate.
    If you can pick it up off the ground and it flies, then there is some interference. At two places I could not start when on the floor, rebar probably, but could start on a table or cardboard box.
