Just wondering if it would be safe to do a compass calibration on one of many identical drones in one location and then copy those values to the other drones without needing to calibrate all the drones?  Should the values be identical if the drones are all exactly the same?

  • Hi J,
    I make Tricopter using individual components, and with Compasses, I use the one out of an I-phone 6, where each one has a separate calibration set.
    Cheers, C.
