    Hi,

    I got this weird problem and couldn't figure it out for the life of me. I bought a used I1 pro from a member here and everything arrived fine. I upgraded the RC and connected to the bird. The Go app says compass needs calibration. So I confirmed w/ the popup window, but then nothing happens. The bird is not in calibre mode and the app is not showing tutorials. The status still shows needs calibration but if i tap on it same cycle happens. The bird will not enter calibre mode and the app is now showing tutorials. I tried an android and an iPhone, same results. I've had P2,3,4 and I1 before and know how to calibrate the compass. Has anyone had similar experience?

    Thanks!

    Hi, do you have the same result when switching the PAF selector 6 times? This should activate the calibration mode.

    If I'm reading this correctly, you got a used Inspire very recently and after receiving it did an update to v1.8 but you did the RC first?
    Is that correct?
