Hi, sorry for the difficulty that you've experienced. Did you try to change the location wherein there are no interferences such as a metal object or power lines? If yes, I would recommend restoring factory defaults and refresh the firmware using the DJI Assistant 2. You can re-calibrate the IMU and compass of your drone once you've done using the application to see if there will be changes. Please see the link below for you to download the application.

I restored the factory defaults and refresh the firmware using the dji assistant 2  but didn’t work! Very disappointed to spend a lot of money to have this kind of problem.

You guys should try to move away from your cars or other metal subjects before turning the AC on. And do not land near such things either. This helped me

Strange why your Mavic Air has problems with Magnetic Interference on Second flight, but not First flight.

Is there anything you might be doing differently between First flight and Second flight?  

For example: How you power-up Mavic Air after swapping battery.

You might try stopping, then restarting GO-4 running on your SmartDevice to simulate First flight of day.

Because this is a known problem for some with MavAir, I would recommend you do a factory reset in assistant, then refresh firmware, this has worked for others, I had similar problem with older firmwares in fact all firmwares until .500, now it seems to be fixed .

Hello
I tell you I had the same problem, I returned it and on the second flight I threw the compass error, what I did was turn off the drone, move 1 meter away, turn it on again and go, no mistake, I do not know what the problea but so solve it, if I tried to calibrate just could not, all this was during the first days of use, today I no longer ask for the calibration. I hope it helps you.

regards

This is not the cause of the problem.

I've had the same problem, it depends where I'm trying to calibrate, usually it works on the second attempt. But I've tried to calibrate on the top of my building over a dozens of times and I haven't had any luck over there.
