Yes, power cables twisted as fas it allows, even to servos, can't be done everywhere.

Remove the Roll/Pitch in Auxmag orientation and redo a test.

Well, I removed the trims and put the values back to 0,0 before doing mag calibration. Then I simply left them at that.

Auxmag orientation has no effect while calibrating Mag.

Remember you can test the Complementary+Mag+GPS fusion algorithm assuming you are using Next branch.
Maybe post some log, while flying at same heading may help.

Thanks. Yes this heli is now using Next branch.
If using Complementary+Mag+GPS instead of INS13, what could be expected? Does it rule out some sensors?
Yes, I can do some logs while flying in same direction, once I got the heli re-configured with the mag/gps mounted further out on the tail boom. I have another trex450 with the gps installed at that location and its doing very stable position hold with a DJI Naza-H FC and GPS.

If you're happy with Basic (Complementary) in Attitude stabilization, Complementary+Mag+GPS will work fine for all GPS modes.

Too windy this weekend but did fly a bit anyway, ended up with a bad soldering on the power cable and had to abort testing. Next time...
