    I just bougth a Walkera Aibao, but when i try to turn on it wont work.
    The compass calibration wont work.
    It's the same problema of these videos:



    I follow every steps from that video:


    Put on the control and imediatly turn on the drone.
    Wait for blue and red ligth stop flashing.
    Connect the app Walkera Drone on wi-fi Walkera Ground
    Move both sitcks down.
    Wait for the blue ligth show's up.
    But when i turn it the drone in 360ยบ horizontaly the red ligth do not appear's.

    No chance for the guys in those videos.

    You can't wear a metal watch and you can't have the tx next to the drone.

    It has to be well away from all metal objects.

    Cheers

    Be aware the iron caste object like drain cover on ground or large metal structures near by. Place close to power line or iron mine also dangerous. I lost control of my craft when fly above an old iron mine. The rock contains iron on there jam the compass and caused my craft fly cycle and crashed.

    Hello fellow Walkerians :D

    I have an issue with an Aibao. I can calibrate it through the stick procedure, but I still notice terrible performance under GPS operation. The drone keeps drifting away and I almost lost it one time. So then I got a message on the screen that I needed to run some calibration procedure through the software but every time I try to calibrate, I got the attached error: "Forbidden when sensor heating" and I can't proceed no matter how much I wait and try. What am I doing wrong?

    Clearly, the error on screen is a bad Chinese translation that I can't figure out.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Did you put Aibao on solid and flat surface when turn on the power? The aircraft need stay on ground to start up the sensors. This process can take some time to complete. It may cause problem when you power up the aircraft and hold on your hand.

    Thanks for replying!

    Yes, I have done that already and still no go on the calibration procedure.

    I am talking about performing a manual calibration through the app settings. The calibration through the controller seems to work briefly and then it goes crazy and asks for calibration again.

    Can you fill in your profile location please.

    Is it winter or summer where you are? Yes It makes a difference.

    The calibration done by the PC will not be a successful compass calibration.

    Do it manually in an open area no rings no watches no tx close. Away from all anomalies. Houses, driveways with reinforced concrete. Etc.

    Cheers Brian
