Hi guys. The copter was kept in the closet for 1.5 years. Today I wanted to use my drone. Could not use drone. As soon as the drone takes off, a compass error immediately appears. Nothing helps to remove the error. What should I do?
 
I don’t really know but I would definitely leave the props off, update it and it’s controller, then run the piss out of it on the simulator. If it doesn’t correct then sounds like a service is needed. Where do you live? There are a few DJI authorized dealers who service the Inspires but not a lot. Be careful who you let work on her. Let us know if this helps.

Tomorrow I will do what you wrote. I will write about the result.

I wouldn't be so quick to update the firmware.

It did not help. Any more advice for me?

Short answer: Replace the compass.

A better answer might be had by being more specific as to what you tried and what your results were, including error messages. Because this is a persistent issue, failures and subsequent error messages should be easy to reproduce.

This is probably not the issue, but you're not trying to fly it in a NFZ? I suppose it won't even take off then...

I'll take the copter to a specialist tomorrow. I will tell what he will say =)

solved the problem. More precisely, my problem was solved by a specialist. he demagnetized the compass. demagnetized with a special device - cfixer

Ahhhh...you must have gotten the compass near a magnet at some point. That was a very important missing variable from your original question. Glad you got it solved.
