    I've just received my inspire and updated the firmware, I've done all the other calibrations etc and before my first flight did a compass calibration.

    The first few times it said compass error so tried again, eventually it went through.

    My first two set of numbers is around +/- 450 and the second set around +/- 1500 is this ok?

    When doing a compass calibration is it ok to just hold the inspire and I turn around rather than just turning the craft?

    I did the dance. But, it looks like that has changed to just rotating the craft.

    If it took several goes to get a calibration I would try a different location, sounds like there might be something at your location throwing the compass off. Go to the middle of a field far away from power lines and anything metal. Concrete surfaces are not good due to its metal reinforcing. It should take first time really.

    This is the first time you have mentioned IMU in your posts.
    You started by saying you had compass calibration issues.
    What are your IMU mod values at rest? (Accelerometer and Gyro)?
