    Concerns over firmware

    I bought my AIR a while back and was immediately spooked by the comments that seemed to suggest the firmware was flakey. I did the dilligent thing and watched lots of videos on how not to lose the drone. I've had the drone out just 3 times and flown for all of 20 mins. During this time I've...

    Radar display interference

    Has anyone else noticed that the compass orientation shown in the radar display is greatly affected by the controller itself. On my galaxy S9, the north indication is completely different depending on whether or not the phone is clamped in the controller. This happens regardless of whether or...

    Compass issues

    I know this topic has been done to death but I was wondering if anyone has had issues calibrating their compass in the mountains. I am in Geiranger, Norway at the moment and had a scary experience with my drone where it had compass warnings out over water a few 100 meters behind a cruise ship...

    Go4App question - directional compass

    MP Q - on the 'radar dial' in the lower-left of the Go4 screen, the red arrow is craft orientation .. that's easy.. (N) is north .. and the white diamond is 'controller direction' (CD)... got all that. My question is: "Shouldn't the (N) always stay pointing north and the CD move as the...

    craft/controller and compass arrows 90-180 off...

    I have had my MP for about 2 months - the below began about a month ago but it took a while for it to be 100% recreateable - now it happens every time... In short, the "MP Direction Arrow" (MPDA) can be 90-180 degrees off of actual craft direction - most/all indicators start out right but...

    Mavic Pro Compass Error (Magnetic Interference when camera facing down)

    Some may recall my previous post where a Black Eagle took my MP out. I have now replaced it. I have however been experiencing intermittent Compass Errors due to Magnetic Interference. All software is up to date. So, I did some testing just now, while calibrating the compass in a big open field 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...

    Litchi compass calibration

    Does the Litchi app tell you to calibrate your compass or IMU? Taking my Mavic to Grand Cayman. DJI Go4 gets squirrelly on me and tells me I have a battery error and need to calibrate my cameras. I've tried to calibrate the cameras, but it doesn't want to calibrate. DJI said I should send my...

    Ascending/descending while yawing / Weird compass 2 values

    I received my new Mavic yesterday. After updating the fw, went out today to do a test flight. Everything is OK but I noticed something strange: when I yaw the craft to the left, it descends about 1 foot, when yaw to the right, it ascends 1 foot (or vica versa, I can't recall it). Also when...
