Hi there, can anybody help me out? I am in South Africa and dont get the drone to calibrate the compass. Alex said before it could be a northern and southern hemisphere problem. I have now waited just over 2 month for Alex to give support or answer on this issue but he refer the problem now to other people and I dont get feedback from them aswell. Can somebody help me please with a solution. I want to use it December but have to get solution forst othetwise I can loose my drone and gopro like some other backers that the unit just flew away. Thanks Ermin
I have seen you posting on the kickstarter page every now and again asking alex this question.
What drone verion have you got an auto or pro?
if it just compass calibration you are having issues with then I'm sure you can still fly it, you would not have the feature of return to home or gps lock. You should be able to fly in atti mode which will just hold the altitude of the drone and be moved around by the wind if in a hover.
So long as you don't fly near an area with similar frequency's operating then a fly away should be minimised!!! but never say never!!! I'm always cautious flying mine even though I know it works, and I fly in open area's.
I forgot to say that if this is a firmware issue then it will be the factory in china that will be sorting out the software for that.
Have you tried updating the drone to the latest firmware to see if that makes any difference, there are new pro and auto firmware available. Would not hurt to see. Pro V2.3 Auto V4.2
The gps coordinates can be a little off on the units that work anyway as mine was about 100 metres off and ricks was 100 miles off from location to controller coordinates. So the coordinates may not help if you did have a fly away!!!!
There is a guy staying in Cape Town called Andrew he had the same problem and his drone actually flied away so did not check the hardware yet. Where can I find hardware in South Africa to test it. Any suggestion what flight controller I must look at. The phantoms is not giving any problems, but then again will they work on the Splash Drone?
Ermin: Has Firmware v2.3 solved your compass calibration problem? Please let us know.

tyuyrt: Hello, I just installed a new GPS with lid - it only works when the lid and cable are dangling down the side of the drone; as soon as I close the lid the lights flash yellow red and green and I cannot take off. I'd appreciate any insights.

chris: marksdrone: just had the same issue with mine. It may be the accelorometer that you need to calibrate first and then do the compass after that.
