    Compass Calibration unsuccessfull

    Hi there, I just got a 3dr solo and been getting magnetic interference everywhere I try to fly. I tried to calibrate the compass but the green bar only gets halfway and gets stuck. I've tried resetting to factory settings, different areas and I'm getting no luck. I've read countless threads...

    Magnetometer Problem?

    We have three Solos, and the most recently purchased one (while they were still available) seems to have a magnetometer problem. We've gone through the calibration steps in the Solo app, but that hasn't helped -- though I do find the calibration method a bit baffling -- rotating in multiple...

    Compass heading?

    Is there a way to display the compass heading of the drone in flight? I have a client who needs views from specific compass headings and I can't seem to find a way to determine which way the drone is pointed exactly. Guessing is something I'd rather not have to do. I've seen a compass appear...
