Mavic Pro Compass Error/IMU Heading

Given the lockdown restrictions lately I decided to live stream a flight from my Mavic Pro Platinum. We live on the Isle of Skye and it’s a very sought after holiday destination so thought it may be quite a popular post given the current climate. You can see the full flight below. I had hovered the drone for about 5 …

COVID-19

During the outbreak of Covid-19 many businesses have been forced to either embrace working from home, temporarily close or close their doors for good.
