"@Crashpilot I didn't take into account the fact that the lipo itself can cause the disturbance - thinking about it it makes sense that it would, I have my GPS compass unit on the stick that DJI supply BUT I mount the lipo basically directly…"

"Which version did you re-install? Really odd that it just cycled through the sides without intervention, never heard of that before"

"Ok so I got it sorted, I uninstalled MP and re-installed it, a bit long winded but it worked, maybe the newer updated MP has a small bug that will affect other people...perhaps a dev could look into it?"

Cannot Calibrate Acell in MP

I am hoping someone can help me, setting up my quad copter I try to do the acell calibration after doing the compass calibration, but the MP flicks through the process without any pauses to move the copter/board to the correct positions. So it fails the calibration every time.Any one else have the same issue? Any suggestions?See More

Shaun Mileson replied to Keith Bartlett's discussion NAZA to ArduCopter
"I have both systems now and although I haven't flown my quad with the apm (arduflyer) board I know that neither system is perfect, I agree the Naza is more plug and play friendly than the apm but having said that I have had my fair share of…"
