Done. Performed the compass calibration. I couldn't get it into calibration mode but through the power of the search function and the Internet, I figured it out. It was because I didn't have Manual set up so I made a quick adjustment in the transmitter and it worked.
It's a beautiful day and very light winds so I'm gonna charge and try it again. Thanks everyone; will report back later.
