    My Movi seems to hate being switched on and put through the contortions of the compass calibration, (almost as much as I hate trying to lift the Alta with the M15 and Red Epic attached), and shows it's displeasure by freezing and then needs rebooting.

    My question is, if I do the compass calibration without the Movi but then attach it, switch everything on and then check the compass reading on the OSD against a regular compass and also check the lat/long on the OSD is correct, can I take that as confirmation that the Alta will know where it is in the air?

    Best

    That's what I would do.


    But then I'm often wrong, but never uncertain. :rolleyes:

    Me too. Just pop it off and do the aircraft only.

    If you get any weird interactions in flight maybe then consider doing it with payload attached. :)
