It's an individual choice for people that don't understand what calibrating the compass actually does and when it's necessary.I have to say that after 18 months lying on a shelf I would calibrate. In fact I calibrate at any new location I go to. It's an individual choice.
Unnecessary recalibrating does nothing at all to make your flights safer.
I'd suggest checking what DJI say on the subject:
Interference is common in urban areas, but it doesn't make one motor stop working properly.At no time was he flying above 90 feet over all those houses. I wonder if there was some sort of interference somewhere along the route?
At worst, it might swamp the control signal and trigger RTH.
The battery doesn't look very healthy and voltage dropped significantly when the pilot tried to climb.He started to lose height at 0.43 and just steadily dropped to the ground.
At the latter part of the flight the battery cells were showing some deviation but still at 95% capacity.
But a low battery doesn't cause one motor to stop.
It just triggers an autolanding.
The compass, interference and battery were not factors that contributed to this crash
