By the way, I have removed the exterior band of copper, because my friend,
an electrical engineer, said that it might cause the compass to read incorrectly.
And I am glad to seeTruckBashers comment about the same thing!

Warren,

See, I am a "forgetful" Old Dinosaur Grandpa! Sorry, my firend!
Oh, I will leave the compass protector business all to you as you do
it so well.

BTW, Do you think that that little extra copper tape on the exterior of
your protectors could interfer with the compass operation like Truck
Basher thought???

The shielded ones I have sold do not have the exterior band. I just made one with the outer band and will try it on mine tomorrow

I'm wondering if it needs recalibrated after the copper bands are installed?? If the shielding is working as we hope it may mess up current settings..again just conjecture

Always recalibrate the compass after you change anything like that on your copter. You should recalibrate the compass often, especially if you are flying in a place that is far from where you last calibrated it. It can't hurt.

Just came back from flying. I encased the entire shroud part of my protector with copper. inside and out. I calibrated it twice and both times I had no issues green light went right out after twirling. I flew it in all modes and had 0 issues. It still locks in less than 30 seconds from cold start. I still would not say that it makes a difference shielded or not in my particular setup. Others may have a different experience I don't know

Hello,
Is there a way to reverse yaw gyro correction in a dji?
Thanks

You dont need to, unless you have the props rotating backwards or the controller upside down.

i have a okto x configuration, all the motors turn like they are suppose to. I get normal response on all axes. The only problem is the yaw. I have to reverse the channel and it just keep on turning on it self. It doesnt self correct.

What is your yaw gain at?

With the Octos I did if the yaw gain was too low they would always want to yaw 1 direction.
As son as I cranked up the yaw gains they flew perfect.

I think they yawed CCW.

the gains are stock.
let me try to explain the problem.
I hold the okto while testing tx inputs and gyro reactions. ailleron and elevator work perfectly, throttle also. The rudder was reversed (even though it appeared correct in the assistant), so i changed it. The problem persists with normal or reverse on rudder, as soon as i turn it by hand, the okto accelerates the yaw input and doesnt try to stop it.
