I travel with my drone and everytime I turn it on after I get somewhere I get a mag interference message on the controller.  Then if I let it sit there long enough I'll get the home point had been updated.
I've tried to do the compass calibration, and it still shows up.  Any idea why I would be getting this message?

Hi there, we're sorry for the inconvenience caused. Please make sure to fly your drone in a wide-open area with no electromagnetic interference. Minimize interference by avoiding areas with high level of electromagnetism such as locations near power lines, base stations, electrical substations, and broadcasting towers. I suggest you try to test it again in a different location so we can check. Thank you.

If you do a compass calibration does magnetic interference problem go away for flight / location you are currently at?

This happened to me a few times. I turn it off and back on and is okay. The first time it happened to me I was inside my truck when I got the first notice

I would attempt the compass calibration and it would get stuck, I would continue to turn the drone in the direction it showed but nothing would happen.  I was outside away from buildings too.  Thanks for the input.

Hi, sorry for the uneasiness of the compass calibration.  I would like to ask if you're near to any metal object? You could follow as well the recommendation on post #8 for better calibration. If you're calibrating in a recommended environment I would like to ask if it's occurring on your both aircraft? Please keep us posted for further help. Thank you for the support.
