Not really sure if I’m meant to post this question here, but I bought a lea-6h gps/compass module from ebay. The gps is functioning well, but the compass is not. When I plug it all in correctly, and turn on MP, the compass heading only points toward the south east direction +/- about 25`, Even when I rotate continuously.
My APM board is 2.5 purchased from 3dr about a year ago and I have since modified it to use the external compass. I had a proper 3dr lea-6h gps, with a separate external compass, but crashed and smashed both of them, hence the new gps/compass module.
I have calibrated the compass a couple of times already, with no change.
I have tried changing the compass orientation manually in the gui.
I have tried removing it from the frame and moving it around with 200mm separation from all other electronics and framework.
My frame is a new diy jobby, made mainly out of fr4 and aluminium. The aluminium is located about 60mm away. The Esc’s and pdb are about 80mm away, but I haven’t run power through them yet so that shouldn’t be the problem.
Is there anything else I can try to get the compass working or to see if it is even functioning right?
