How to calibrate DJI Mavic Mini drone compass?

By  Sigismondo Eisenhower 2019-11-02 5162 0

If you own the small mini drone DJI Mavic Mini and are in the air with it a lot, you will surely get the message in the DJI Fly App that the compass of the DJI Mavic Mini has to be calibrated. But how exactly does this work? Our article describes step by step how to calibrate the drone.

DJI Mavic Mini ​ 


Please ensure the following before calibration: Everything used in flight should be powered during calibration, such as the GPS tracker. Remove any objects from your body that may interfere with calibration, such as metal on watches or rings, etc. Carry out the calibration in a meadow outdoors, preferably far away from sources of interference such as cars, etc.  

How to calibrate DJI Mavic Mini compass?

Step 1: switch on the DJI Mavic Mini.

Step 2: wait until the remote control and the drone are ready.

Step 3: open the Aircraft Status in the DJI App and there you will see the entries Compass and "Calibrate".

Step 4: a window appears - Selects Start to start calibration.

Step 5: take the DJI Mavic Mini in your hand and turn it once through 360°(if possible with constant speed).

Step 6: now tilt the drone 90°to the side and turn 360°again.

Step 7: "Compass Calibration Complete" will appear in the DJI Fly App.


Now you have successfully calibrated the DJI Mavic Mini and the compass should be able to recognize the compass direction by means of the magnetic sensor. It is possible that the calibration has to be carried out more often, depending on how strong the sources of interference are in the environment.

What if DJI Mavic Mini compass calibration failed?
