Hey team,

I have been out around 3-4 times, used ever feature, everything looking and feeling great.

right.....

I see on videos that some people are doing the calibration wrong...... but DJI I think is also making a mistake ..


in stage 2 of the calibration.... the image shows the camera facing toward you....... but it does say in TEXT that with the nose pointing DOWN , rotate drone...... I have also confirmed this with DJI guy at the store...


some people are roating it with the camera facing them... now im thinking this is stuffing up the axis that most people are crashing on ???

BUT THEN i also see some videos where it DOESNT even say point the camera down, just has the image..

IS THIS THE REASON PEOPLE ARE CRASHING ???? TO me...... maybe....

No.

While nose down is the most common way to hold the Spark on the second stage of the compass calibration, it's okay to hold the Spark with the camera facing to either side -- like this:

Mine only works with body horizontal and on its side. Tried it many times both ways.
