First time building a drone, so please excuse me if I am ignorant of something obvious.

Right now I am running Mission Planner, and attempting to arm a Holybro PX4 2.4.6 flight controller. However, I get the error "prearm: compass not healthy." This is because I am not using a compass, and therefore I thought that disabling the compass would eliminate the need to keep it healthy. If I enable the compass (which again, I don't have), I get the error "bad compass health."

How do I get around this error?

Thanks for the link, but I've already done this. I disabled the compass in the parameters, and unchecked all the boxes under mandatory hardware, yet still get the error. Any other ideas?
