Can someone give a rundown on compass readings and maybe screenshot of what is correct. What the values mean and what the values should be at? Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Gyroscope:
After an IMU calibration on a level surface you need to try and keep ALL these values as close to 0.00 as possible. Slight variotions os OK though and ther mod should not go over 1.0

Acceleration:
Again slight variotions from 0.00 is OK for the XYZ but the MOD needs to be 1.0.

Compass:
The XYZ of the compass is its RAW readings. What you need to make sure is that the MOD value is between 1400 and 1600 ( some say 1300 and 1600 ). I like to see mine near about 1500 and I get slight variations depending on wherre I fly.
