Look at the app settings under Sensors to see what it tells you about the compass.
It should look something like this:

If you have eliminated all sources of magnetism on your person, device, ground, nearby items; Check for any local electronics repair (phones, pc, etc) nearby that can demagnetize your compass. Or, as in post #4 locate a c-fixer. And replace if that fails too.

When you first power up the drone and remote and they link, does it show the red banner with the ‘strong magnetic interference’ ?
