    i had an accident with my p3s, everything seems to look ok. but i tried to fly again, and the compass wont calibrate. it says something about strong magnetic interference, but there isnt. i been flying it from there severall times before. i tried, restarting it and IMU calibrating but the problems persists.
    do anybody knows what the proboem might be?
    i live in mexico so taking it to a support center it's not a viable option
    thanks

    When you look at your sensor readings in the GO app, does it show -0- for your compass reading? If so, you may have damaged or unplugged your compass in the crash.

    If there is a number (a good thing) are you sure there is no interference in the location?

    Zero is not a good thing since it likely means your compass was damaged or disconnected in your accident. If there were just interference, you would still see numbers.

    Check the cables going to your compass to see if one is broken or became disconnected. The easy one to check is in the landing gear. The much harder one to check is inside which requires a difficult top cover removal.
