When performing the compass calibration procedure on a 350qx should you use true or magnetic north? I was told to use true north. The only reason that I question that answer is because on page 16 in the Blade 350qx manuel, under Compass Calibration it states in part, "The Flight Controller on the 350 QX has automatic magnetic declination calibration, so yo will not have to worry about looking up the the magnetic declination at your location and changing setting on your 350 QX to get accurate compass measurements." To me, that bit of information provide by Blade mean that they are using magnetic north to calibration the compass. I want to be so right about this because recently had a flyaway and after searching for 2 days and giving up any hope of every finding it, I get a call from a nice lady who found my quad in her back yard. Now however I'm a little shy to fly the thing, so does anybody have any thought on "true" vs "magnetic" north question?
