Total Noob issues with first setup steps!

Hello everyone!

I've been a long time lurker and finally have a ardupilot 2.6.  I have succesfully connected it to Mission planner (v1.2.62).  When I attempt to calibrate the compass I get an error that says "log does not contain enough data"  Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?  I did watch the youtube clip and have tried to do as much reading as humanly possible.

    We've put some work into the wiki.  You've probably already read it but here it is just in case.  There's an advanced compass set-up page as well here.

    In any case, the issue is that when doing the dance (shown on that advanced compass set-up page) you've likely missed some orientations.  Either that or the mission planner isn't receiving data from your compass for some reason.

  • I saw in another forum that you need to hover for awhile and then try again. This should give the log sufficient data.
