Is it necessary to calibrate the compass while changing the place of flying ,if the initialization process is successful ?

No. Not unless you have moved hundreds of miles away, or the controller is asking you to.

It depends on how closer you are to the north pole. Magnetic fields get narrower the farther north.

I asked because I previously had the Bayangtoys X21 drone in which, when changing the place of flying, it was necessary to carry out again the calibration.

slightly related, but have you seen how the migration of the 'north pole' has occurred even since discovery and usage by ships ?

iirc will be in uk in 100 yrs or so (well a little longer than that). ;)
