    Since owning my Inspire, I have done a lot of reading about flyaways & crashes, some due to pilot error and some unlucky malfunctions.

    With regard to the first "Pilot Error" I have noticed a lot of it has been the lack, bad or no proper compass calibration or checking their IMU readings.

    Surely this could be checked by the "Pilot App" itself before giving takeoff clearance and any reasons to address it highlighted.

    Just my thoughts

    Oh ok thank you Kilrah I'm just being very cautious. I did not know it does actually check for you.

    No saying we should not have our own check list to go by.

    Kind regards

    You don't. - It will only throw up a message If it believes a calibration is necessary.
