    Hello Pilots,

    Nowadays some drone accessories come with handy magnetic on their back so it could stick on whatever metal surface easily.

    If I done the drone compass calibration properly, then I stick on these kind of accessories, will it affect the drone compass?

    Many thanks!

    I wouldn't. I had the trackimo that had the magnet. I took that off and used velcro instead. Magnets and compass's don't like each other. Never put your drone near car speakers, just asking for trouble.
