Got the mavic2 last week. Had to update using Assistant 2 aleady. Flies well but today when over at a friends i had to calibrate compass as requested then during flight it disconnected and rth saying mag interference and remote controller error. Must be a local power line issue. Perfect day in northern nsw for flying today. The camera zoom is great.

If it's complaining about magnetic interference first step is never to calibrate the compass. Always move away from the interference / choose a different launch site first, only calibrate if the problem is region - wide.

If you try to calibrate while standing in a region of high local interference (substations, radio antennae, powerlines) you'll get a bad calibration that can annoy the drone once it flies back into clear air.

Northern NSW...6.30am. Mavic2 flew fine today after disconnecting and RTH yesterday. I can fly across about 400m to the neighbours and operate but cannot launch from there because get error message for remote. Has happened 3 times so I'll stay away. Must be a strong EMF possibly from a farm motor. DJI_0011.JPG
