Hi folks,
I have multiple Yuneec drones, including several Typhoon H's. I have made repairs to many of my drones including replacing various components requiring soldering, etc. This Typhoon H is the one that I prefer to use for survey flights and it has been great. Recently, it developed a compass error which interrupted the CCC flight at the time. I had a replacement module which I installed and the drone is doing fine. I am asking the skilled folks on the forum to help me with repairing this GPS/Compass V02 module (along with two others from previous years, all of which have a compass warning alone). In short:
Which is the compass chip on the GPS/Compass module? Where might it be obtained?
Has anyone made that repair?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Stephen Wallenhaupt

There are two different versions out there, the older one has HMC5883 compass chip and newer have IST8310. You must identify which one you have. The chip in the upper left corner.

This is the ID for the HMC5883. If it is different then you have IST8310.

And this is a IST8310:

I don't believe that a replacement will help in your case but can try if you have a good soldering station for SMDs.

You might try using a degaussing tool to see if you can get rid of the error.
