Primary compass not found, mag inconsistent ! Pixhawk 4

#1

Hello everyone !
I am getting “primary compass not found or mag inconsistent error by QGC”. It gets solved after I do the compass calibration especially via USB. However every time I connect my battery and do some bench testing I have to perform this step. Please can someone guide me regarding this !
Thank you !

Which version are you using? Can you try if this still happens with latest master?

#3

I use stable 1.8.1. Yes I will try with latest master

#4

I bet I am not the only person curious about this. @Vrinda if you have the time, could you please post your experience moving from 1.8.1 and head of master? Do you find that this behavior improves?

#5

Does it mean that if you do the calibration with the battery only, the issue remains after calibration?
Do you reboot the drone after mag calibration?

#6

Yes with battery the issue remains. Yes I do reboot !

@langrind , I will keep you posted :slight_smile:

Update: So currently, once I started flying the drone, it does not give me the error. Thus am sticking to stable 1.8.1
