Hello everybody!
I accidentally noticed that if you quickly move the flight mode switch on the remote control (cine, normal, sport) several times, the drone will enter the compass calibration mode.
There is nothing in the instructions about this.
It turned out to be very handy! Does it work like that for everyone?

Yes, it's a hold over from the days of Phantom 3 standard where you toggle the mode switch to enter compass calibration mode.

Handy?
How often do you need to recalibrate your compass?

Hold over from Phantom 3... they keep that feature, but pretty much drop all the useful features from the GO App instead of importing the ones people actually find helpful into the Fly App?  

Nice job DJI!

Yes, that's an intended feature I use pretty often when going to another location to fly.
It is always better to spend 20 seconds more to calibrate compass but then be sure that your drone will not fly away!

I wasn't aware of that feature.  Thanks for sharing.
