compass error

    Not a flat horizon. Calibrating the camera mount does not help.

    Hi guys. Began to travel a lot. Recently I noticed that my drone does not have a flat camera horizon. Calibration camera suspension does not help. Nothing helps. There were no crashes - the drone did not fall. How to fix it?

    Arctic compass issues DJI drones

    HI - I'm posting here in part because its gotten harder to search for this issue due to the "Arctic White" models. My issue is flying in North Greenland - we're well above the magnetic pole. I'm currently using a Mavic Pro, and have the same issue many working this far north do. The compass...

    Compass Error - Crash

    Yesterday while flying my MPP, on a nice long roundabout route, I experienced a compass error and then a crash. I was out in a ballfield and had flown approximately 4000 feet away at about 380 feet high. I got down to about 40% battery and hit the RTH button. I had flown a little in sport mode...

    Mavic and salt flats

    Hi - long time reader, first time poster. I will be heading to the Bolivian salt flats soon, with my Mavic Pro, and yesterday I met a couple who had recently been there. They said that I should be careful when flying my mavic out there because “the salt messes with the magnetic field and...

    Compass error, Yaw error, IMU error and so on.

    Hi When i fly my Mavic Pro last night i got a lot of compass error, GPS error, Yaw error, IMU error and even "Weak GPS Signal", but it was connected to 23 satellites, so it should not be weak/bad GPS-signal. What could the reason be for all this errors? I landed the Mavic and restarted it and...

    Compass error after yawing 360deg

    Hello everyone, I bought Mavic Pro a week ago and didn't have a single successful flight yet. I keep getting "Compass Error. Exit P-GPS mode..." error. Both compasses are working and are calibrated in an open field. (tested by putting metal thing to compasses - both react as they should). I...

    Compass error almost every flight - ATTI mode usually for 10-120 sec, then OK

    Hi! I’ve had my MPP for about a month, and on almost every flight I’ve had a compass error which results in gps error (?) and ATTI mode is enabled. I believe the two compasses (redundancy) sends different data to the drone, which then cannot for sure know its precise location and also disables...

    Another Compass Calibration, Seriously?

    My Mavic Air seems to require a compass calibration each time I fly. Indoors, seems to be mostly normal but outdoors is another story. I fly in rural areas over forest, lakes, waterfalls. Today I launched from a frozen lake. My Mavic Air needed the usual compass calibration dance (3X) and my DJI...

    Compass error - Go to Atti mode. The obstruction of the horizon.

    Hello everybody. Help me. After take-off, a compass error appears. (I fly in different places - forest, field, city). Always the same. About 2 minutes after take-off, the compass error appears. The calibration does not help. What to do? Help please advice. I think my compasses are magnetized.

    THESE ARE HARDWARE FAULTS AND YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE FAILED COMPASS PCB compass2 replacement... YOU NEED GOOD TOOLS AND A GOOD FINE TIPPED SOLDERING IRON TO DO THIS. After a year with my Mavic Pro, I began to get compass errors and looking through (DJI Go 4 App) Main Controller Settings ->...

    Speed error

    Couple of days ago my Mavic issued Speed error and as visible from the log also Yaw error and Compass error in a short period of time at the beginning of the flight. It felt like it was drifting uncontrollably for couple of seconds. Then everything came back to normal and there were no more...

    How can I ever trust her again?

    OK that's a bit dramatic, but I am now reluctant to fly my Mavic. Here is the lineage of events leading up to this. So I sent my mavic back for the second time for a camera/focus issue. Both times DJI said that they repaired the camera and gimbal for a cost of $175 which they warranteed...

    Weak GPS signal, was it my fault?

    Unusually we've been having a lot of sunshine in the UK and I thought I'd make a sun hood to sit on my iPhone6 when attached to the Mavic controller. It's just a rectangle of thin black card about 4" high with a cut out at the bottom for my fingers. I thought I was really clever, but for the...

    Mavic is now useless

    Using latest software - My drone is unusable at this time - seems to get worse every time I use it. I now get almost constant warning messages - including "Disconnected" when Mavic and controller are within 50 feet! It is impossible to rely on the video as well as it is completely garbled...

    Compass error: Move aircraft or calibrate compass

    Everything is working great on my new Mavic. I have reset the IMU and compass. Issue is everytime I go into Sport mode I get "Compass error: Move aircraft or calibrate compass", this only happens when flying at max speed. Has this happen to anyone else? If yes, what was the fix?
