There can be many factors but most of the time it is caused by strong interferences by e.g. metal or other electronic devices etc. at take off time or during flight. Try to fly in an open space without sources of interference. You should not calibrate your compass in areas with interference and also only do it when requested by the app or when you have changed location over a big distance.

I belive there where some high voltage cable nearby where i flew my drone. Maybe that was the reason for the compass error. Live and learn

Oh yes, power lines can be very bad! I am glad that you have found the source of the problem.

Sir, it is recommend to fly in the place without interference. I'd suggest to the tutorial video of Flight Environment Selection for your reference.
