Hello, sometimes when I try to start the engines on my P3S I get the warning "compass stuck, restart the aircraft". Is it a common problem with refurbished P3S?

I have a p3 refurbished and the answer is no. I have never seen that pop up. I have never had to restart the motors for any reason.

Same. Just put new camera and central control board in mine and it sinced up no problem. Sounds like you have some other issue going on.

Remove phantom from metal object nearby and with aircraft turned on use a magnet and hold it near the compass on the bottom of landing gear until fixes the problem by moving the magnet around, it will go from compass error to ready to fly on rc, hope this helps

My question is, does restarting fix it?

try booting it up over your head and find something like a plastic chair to act as a launch pad, my p3s(not refurbished) also gets this sometimes when flying from concrete with steel bars in it
