Hummmmm that’s wired. I know I had a “fight” with mine for the first time, afterwards I moved slower and without stoping until I would do over 360, but i suppose you did that already.
That’s is a problem I have not hear off already.
I hope it works

It will not calibrate in a location with a lot of interference. Go to better location and try. If that doesn’t work get it replaced

alright bud. You can not be near anything that has metal in it or close to you proximity. Find a field if it still doesn't work in this field your in let me know your coordinates cause I'm coming with a back hoe LOL. Kidding anyway try the field follow the diagram slowly you will notice the blue bars collect on the circle. Go slllooowwwlllyyy. First horizontal then you will notice pic changed to were you have to point it up same process . Remeber all counter clockwise . Let me know

First, keep the controller at least 10 feet away from the drone. As others have said, you also want to be in an area free from interference. Don't have a phone or other electronic devices on your person. Stay away from metal (both above and below ground). Avoid concrete that might have metal reinforcement. Don't calibrate on sand that might have magnetite in it.

Try calibrating the acceleromter first. I don't know why this helps, but when the compass is having difficulty calibrating it sometimes helps. If you do get the drone calibrated, fly for a few minutes, land, and then calibrate the acceleromter again. It's best done when the drone components are at operation temperature.

You need to have the controller and drone connected to calibrate.

Both the drone and controller have GPS chips. If the controller doesn't have GPS it might be getting interference. Treat the controller the same way as the drone and avoid having it near electrical devices.

Also, check for Geomagnetic interference. Currently the Kp is at 5. Anything 4 or higher will give communication interference. It looks like October 16 will be a better day with a kp of 3.
