    When I go to calibrate the compass before flying I can calibrate the compass horizontally 360 and the lights turn green that's fine
    but when I go to calibrate the compass 360 vertically it doesn't work and the lights turn red
    so I tried again and it still wont calibrate vertically

    I've tried going to other locations but the same thing happens what am I doing wrong here?
    could there be an issue with the p4?

    make sure the front of it faces down as you do the vertical calibration, not up.

    Are you holding it like this when calibrating?
