Hi, I am no expert but I can answer one question , You do not need to calibrate compass before every flight. Once you have successfully calibrated compass there is no need. Good luck.Hi there,i have flown my phantom 3 once.Can not get it going again. Do I need to calibrate compass every time I need to fly.Cannot get imu calibrated either.Advice please.
It’s been about 2months since I flew it. Haven’t been able to get it flying after first flight. Tried a few times and gave up. Keeps saying imu error. On app it’s says calibrate compass but I’ve done that. Maybe reset it and start again. Would that help. Thanks.
Thanks for that,going to try again this weekend. Weather no been good the last week@Rob1468,
Did you check out those threads?
There isn't a heater
I guess its like the IMU needs to get to the same temperature as it was when it was last calibrated. It definitely makes a difference if it was calibrated in the summer and now it is winter.
But are you getting anywhere?
Thank for your help. I managed to get flying today. Kept drone out in shed all night. The same temp as outside. Every went ok with imu and calibration. Thank goodness. Was worried I wouldn’t fly again. Just got to master the flying bits nowThanks for that,going to try again this weekend. Weather no been good the last week
