For gesture mode, palm take off and flying without connecting to RC or smartphone. Does the compass issue still affect such users ? How can they avoid compass error issue or they are immune ?

Thanks

Do you have a reason to believe this mode would be immune?

Tip To Help Avoid compass interference and crash.

Does anyone have any tips on how to turn off the compass (to fly indoors) on the Mavic Air?  I keep having issues where it won't let me get the AC off the ground; and use up battery trying to connect and constantly re calibrating compass.

Indoors, electrical equipment and metal objects can interfere with the drone compass. for example, my Spark (this is a Spark section) goes crazy near my computer. Calibration is only recommended in the yard.
