Ever since I went on a vacation in Hawaii, I have been unable to calibrate my compass and there is a compass error no matter what. I can't even fly due to these. Earlier, I managed to calibrate but I got an error immediately when I took off. Is this an error with the firmware or the drone itself?

Go into the app and see what it shows for the compass in Sensor Data.
If you have a number showing for the compass, it should be able to be calibrated.
But if it shows zero, your compass is disconnected or has a broken wire.

It shows a valid number.

That's a good start.
It indicates that your compass isn't disconnected.
Have you tried recalibrating in just the one location or several places?
I've tried in Hawaii, and many places where I live. I think that counts.

Get a cheap plug in D magnetizer hold it next to your compass at the bottom of your landing gear for a few seconds then take it out and calibrate it it should fix your problem
