    I arrived today from a plane trip. I did put the M10 on the box as Freefly oriented us on another post here on the forum, and also protected it a little more.

    When I turned it on today for testing it, all the indicators on the app were showing as ERROR, and the 3 green lights where blinking all the time. I looked on the manual, and it told that in this cases it may be some cable that is not plugged correctly. All the plugs were ok, but after forcing then a little more and turning the system on again, all of the indicators were good, except the COMPASS, that still showing the word ERROR.

    What is the compass? What does it do, and how can I solve this? Is it possible to use the MoVI without the compass working?

    I asked Tabb about this today. Is there a chance that you were in a place where there was a lot of metal that could be distorting the Earth's magnetic field? If not, then Gary is, yet again, spot on....and you need to open a trouble ticket with FF.
