    How To: Breeze Compass Calibration

    The compass (or magnetic) calibration is one of the most important things to accomplish on your Breeze to help prevent flyaways. This is best accomplished in an open field away from any electrical power lines (above or below ground), reinforced concrete slabs or buildings, metal objects like...

    Compass Calibration

    Hi, does anyone have a good answer on this: How far from the calibration location the calibration is valid? If I fly to another country, make the compass calibration there in one location - then drive about 15 miles away and fly my Typhoon H. Is the calibration still valid 15 miles away from the...

    Calibrations for the Typhoon H

    Here are some good videos on performing the calibrations. Feel free to add your favorite videos on this topic. Notes: - conventional wisdom suggests removing the camera before compass calibration. It saves the gimbal a lot of stress. - Although not a calibration, conventional wisdom is to...

    Here is a long overdue "Typhoon H calibration" video I recently put together. It is designed for new Typhoon H pilots (you experienced pilots already know all of this and much more). Instead of three separate videos, I put all 3 calibration items together in one video for easy reference. I...

    Compass Calibration !!!SUCCESS!!! (finally)

    well, after 10 attemps to Comp Cal my H, finally I succeeded. Analyzing my previous attempts, i realized that the key was in the spins of each pair of arms, must be done pretty fast. I mention, this time, it was a super clear spot on the banks of the Rio De La Plata, a place full of grass...

    LED Status Indications Before/During Flight

    I'm new to this site, and want to say to everyone contributing information - THANK YOU! I love my 'H', but feel a bit shorted at this time by Yuneec's considerable lack of supporting information, like a systems/flight manual which seems to be a given. Anyway, your replies and the video links...
