Error heading

hi

I have a new problem with the heading:
Put heading in the north, the reading in QGC is right = 0°
I turn the FC 360° on itself and return to the North and now i read in QGC= 20°. But that can be other false values.
All heading are false, the south is at 200° (180+20).

I power down the FC, put the FC to the North, then reconnect and I read 0°, but slowly I see the heading coming to 20°.
I have tried several dance and other parameters, reloaded the firm, no change.
Strange isn't ?
Help is welcome :idea:
The firm is R416 +dimu.

Alain

No, it isn't strange.
On AQ, the Mag is only used during the init-phase.

Hi is that indoor?, because when a gps signal is available, and seeing that on your screen it is, it will take the gps heading and that 'can' be different from the AQ yaw.
Your gps is locked in 3d but with a fairly poor accuracy (almost 2m) hence the possible wrong direction.

Just a minor point, GPS doesn't (can't) report heading (where the front of the MR is pointing), it's technically course over ground. The HUD & PFD in QGC always show magnetic heading, which will often be different from course.

Many thanks for the replies.
Firm R445 +dimu. no quatos.
I repeat the error is only with the hott (MX20)
It is correct on the smartphone (aqgcs0.3.5)
In Fligth the same error With an GPS accuracy of 33.
I am uploading a video to show you the error .

You could see I begin at 240° :
QGC ---> MX20
249° ---> 242
265 ----> 0°
268 ---> 12
291 ---> 36
335 ---> 72
0° ---> 100°
3° ---> 104°

4° ---> 4°
26° ---> 6°
64 ---> 52
69 ---> 68
Come back a bit:
66 ---> 64
78---> 66
94 ---> 66
123 ___> 96
Correct :
124---> 124
Error at 240°
290 --->44
283 ---> 14
316 ---> 56
0 ---> 96

I always have that error and need help.
I repeat the error is only on the MX20 Hott. The reading is correct on the android QGC.
Am I alone with that error ?
Many thanks
