Compass calibration is an essential step in ensuring the safe and accurate operation of your Mavic 3 Enterprise drone through the DJI Pilot 2 application. Follow these instructions to perform the calibration process:


1. Preparation:

   - Charge the Mavic 3 Enterprise battery fully.

   - Choose an open area away from metallic objects, high-voltage lines, magnetized fields, and cellular equipment to avoid interference during calibration.

   - Ensure that the drone's firmware and the DJI Pilot 2 application are up-to-date.



2. Open DJI Pilot 2 Application:

   - Power on the Mavic 3 Enterprise and the remote controller.

   - Connect the mobile device to the remote controller.

   - Start the DJI Pilot 2 application on the mobile device.



3. Accessing Compass Calibration:

   - In the DJI Pilot 2 app, go to the main menu or the drone's settings. You can access this by tapping the three dots in the top corner of the screen.



   - Navigate to the “Safety” menu or similar section where you find settings related to the drone’s safety features.

   - Look for the “Compass” section within the safety settings. Here, you should find an option for calibration. Tap on “Calibrate Compass” or a similarly named option.



4. Initiating Calibration:

   - The app will provide instructions on how to proceed with the calibration. You can begin the calibration process by following the on-screen instructions.

   - You will likely be prompted to hold and rotate the drone in specific orientations. Pay close attention to the instructions within the app.


5. Performing the Calibration:

   - First, hold the drone horizontally and rotate your body 360 degrees. The app may show a progress bar or indicator.

   - Next, you may be instructed to hold the drone vertically, nose down, and rotate again 360 degrees. The specific orientations can vary, so follow the app's guidance closely.


6. Completing Calibration:

   - The DJI Pilot 2 application will notify you once the calibration is completed. If the calibration is successful, you will see a confirmation message.

   - If the app indicates calibration failed, move to a different location to minimize interference and try again.


7. Post-Calibration:

   - After successful calibration, checking the drone's status in the app is a good idea to ensure no errors or warnings.

   - Store the drone in a non-magnetic environment to maintain calibration accuracy.


8. Regular Checks:

   - Regularly check the compass status in the DJI Pilot 2 app, especially if you fly in different locations or the drone has been stored for an extended period.


Remember to perform compass calibration before flying to ensure your drone's navigation accuracy and overall flight safety. If you encounter persistent problems or errors during calibration, consult the Mavic 3 Enterprise user manual or contact DJI support for assistance.
