How to Calibrate the Compass in DJI Pilot 2

DJI Pilot 2 is the flight software used by the DJI Matrice 300 RTK and the DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise.

Calibrating the compass is a routine calibration typically required anytime the drone changes from an indoor to an outdoor environment and vice versa.

Before you start:

Do not calibrate your compass where there is strong magnetic interference. For example, avoid electronic devices, magnetite, parking structures, and underground steel reinforcement.


Move to an open area outside and then follow the procedure below:

1. Power on your remote controller and aircraft. 

2. From the home screen, tap Pilot.

3. Then tap Manual Flight.

4. From the camera view, tap the three dots in the top right corner of the screen.

5. Within the Flight Controller settings menu, scroll down and tap Sensor Status.

6. Tap the Compass tab on the right and then tap Calibrate Compass below. Remember to stay clear of magnets or metal objects while calibrating the compass.

7. A pop-up window with instructions for calibrating the compass will appear. You will begin by performing a horizontal rotation as displayed in the prompt.

8. After completing the horizontal rotation, the pop-up window will update with instructions for completing the vertical rotation.

9. Rotate the aircraft vertically until you see another pop-up window confirming that the compass calibration has been completed. Tap OK.
