I installed my magnetometer recently and it seems to be working nicely when looking at the CLI test. havnt flown yet though.
I was curious and decided to compare the magnetometer with a standard needle compass. I found that one of the 2 are about 5-10 degrees out.
Its not a lucky packet or chrismas cracker compass that I have, its quite a decent one so im pretty sure its facing magnetic north.
I might be getting ahead of myself here so the question is, should the front arm of my quad point in the same direction as the compass needle or is there some kind of explination for the slight offset?
I have double checked my declination. it is 17*44' negative. in South Africa, Pretoria.
