"Inconsistent Compasses", "Error Compass Variance"... have you ever seen those messages?
Did you know that magnetic interference can lead to unstable GPS Position Hold and in most cases... crash?
Every drone's GPS Position Hold algorithm relies on magnetic heading data coming from magnetic sensors (also referred to as electronic compasses).
