1 Compass Calibration on Fri Oct 16, 2015 9:45 pm

I have tried the Compass Calibration several times after viewing the video . After doing the 'circle' 2 times and toggling the switch to do the second part
the green light goes out and never comes back on . I get nothing . I have to unplug the battery , and then plug it in again to be able to fly or try to recalibrate again . I have flown the 380 15+ times already but I just wanted to see if I could do the calibration . The quad flies pretty good but it doesn't like to hold the height  especially on auto take off . It seems like it wants to climb a little higher every minute or 2 . Any ideas?

 Thanks

After first part light goes out when you toggle for second part i can't remember but i think it flashed but when you pick up and go vertical light should go red and go out when you put back down after doing circle then toggle again for it to save
Over all the video is same

I get no lights after the first part at all , nothing . When I pick it up on second part the light is still out and never comes back on .

I have had a look and can't find anyone else who has this problem have you asked on Facebook groups or the rcgroups xk380 page we still have got to get more members to build up a good knowledge base on here

I installed the Flight Conf. software (easy to do) to see the setting . Are the basic settings posted somewhere to see if they match mine ?

  Aileron    4
  Elevator  -3
  Throttle   48
  Rudder    3
 Roll and pitch seem to change a little from 0 to 0.2
 The level indicator moves up and down   to    0.4
 All this is happening while quad is stationary and level.

I have checked the RC XK380 forum but they all seem to be more interested in the gimbal setup .

Still having FUN but wish it would let me calibrate the compass .

from memory should be 0 0 50 0 which would indicate transmitter needs calibrating

You can calibrate the controller in the Flight Conf software - or reset.
Hope you get it working.

I finally got the quad sorted out . Took several+ try's .

      I used Copter Hubsan's video which helped with the transmitter calibrating and GPS .
