The Settings tab in the Navigator software holds information about the aircraft and allows for some configuration options. This information and functionality is usually not needed for performing a regular flight.
In any of the following situations:
To do this, first go to the ‘Settings’ tab within Navigator, then click on ‘Compass Calibration’.
1. Ensure that there are no metallic objects in the vicinity of Marlyn. This means phones out of pockets, no buildings and vehicles within 20m, and no metal in the ground beneath where the calibration is being performed.
2. The drone should also be in its surveying configuration, with 2 batteries and a payload module inserted, and the cover attached.
3. Once these steps are complete, press ‘Start’ on the screen. If the batteries are not inserted at this point, the software will return an error.
To perform the calibration, Marlyn needs to be held in 6 unique positions which will be shown on screen.
Follow the onscreen instructions, first holding Marlyn in the correct position, once this is registered the icon will then start spinning which indicates that the user must spin Marlyn around for 5 to 10 seconds until the icon gains a green border and a green tick.
Once the final step is complete, the screen will come up with the confirmation as shown. It is of critical importance that you then reboot the drone by removing both batteries before flying!
If for any reason during the process the calibration does not complete successfully (i.e. if the drone is not placed in the correct orientation at the correct moment), the screen will show the following screen; In this case, you will need to repeat the process from the beginning.
