Magnetometer fails on calibration
« on: November 23, 2018, 01:00:26 am »
Using next version I get error calibrating magnetometer with a Revo onboard mag. Tried with aux mag (DJI GPS/Compass)... also failed.  What can cause an error to calibrate?

Magnets close to the sensors.  There are magnets in LiPo alarms, in the speakers (speakers not piezo).

A lot of metal in the area.

A lot of AC power close by.

Really should be done outdoors.

Once calibrations starts, it constantly gathers data, not just when you press the button 6 times.  You must not set it on the ground between presses.  You must not set it on a car between presses.

Maybe waiting too long between presses and generally taking too long.  I am not sure If this is actually a problem.

Incorrect motions or motions too fast.  Motions are not critical and very hard to make it too fast to pass.  Hard to make this a problem at all.

Are you following the instructions or are you trying to do a different mag dance?
