    I travel all over the USA, do I need to recalibrate compass all the time before each flight?

    The rule of thumb is if you travel more then 50 miles you should calibrate. Some will argue this rule but hey it takes a few minutes to do, why take chances.
    I have the Q500, travel to town 25 miles away and I notice the quad not reacting like it did back home. Its up to you. Five minutes calibrating or a crashed drone ........Hmmmm seems pretty easy to decide to me.

    Yea but I usually have a hard time calibrating it when I have to depend on the colors since I'm colorblind.Had my granddaughter help me at home..lol.. But either way you are right I guess, a headache trying to calibrate it is nothing compared to crashing it lol
