What are acceptable compass offsets?


We are a group working on our bachelor thesis. In short, our goal is to make a drone fly autonomously. But we’re not sure we’re calibrating the compass correctly.

Were using:

  • Navio+
  • GNSS antenna
  • Raspberry pi3
  • Mission Planner 1.3.41

During calibration we get 0 compass error.

  • What are the recommended compass offsets?
  • And are those the right settings?

Any help would be appreciated :slight_smile:


@kenneth.f compass on Navio has a wider range than the one used on Pixhawk so if you stumble upon “high offsets” warning - don’t worry, it should not matter. Values on the screenshot look fine.
