I’m new in this forum and found it because of the first issue with my two weeks old Mavic Pro. I already did several flights without any problems.
Yesterday I first was flying a bit from one position. Then before changing to the next battery, I did a compass calibration because I was receiving errors in the area I was taking off (moving did improve, but one compass was nearly constant at above 900). I did the calibration in an open area with no concrete or metal close by, then moved back to the previous take-off location, changed the battery and took off. Right after I was in the air the drone was starting to hover to the right (probably with the wind) and was hard to steer back. In my panic, I was not really checking for warning signs but more focusing on getting it safely back to ground (the place was really shitty for such a problem).
I was reading a bit about this behavior and believe that either the place for the calibration was bad or I did something wrong during calibration, but I wanted someone else more experienced probably to review it to be sure. I uploaded the flight log to Phantom-Help: LINK
If you need the Dat file as well I can provide a dropbox link. The confusing thing for me is, that it was all the time in P-GPS mode and still hovered away. Most of the other issues I was reading about were where the drone was switching to ATTI mode.
Most importantly what should be the next steps before the next flight. Generally a new compass calibration in a place really free from magnetic distractions. Should I recalibrate the IMU as well? I’m kinda scared because I’m living close to the beach and probably flying pretty much above water.
Thank you upfront for every help and tip.
