This allows software programs to more accurately stitch the area of interest, as the edges of a completed stitch tend to warp.
Before you start the calibration, make sure the following good practices are observed:
- Do not perform a calibration indoors or within 10 feet of a building.
- Do not perform a calibration within 15 feet of a vehicle.
- Empty your pockets of all electronics (phones, watches, etc.), large metallic objects (knives, etc.), and magnetic objects.
- Keys and metal objects of similar size are okay if kept away from the aircraft.
- Be sure to place removed items at least 5–10 feet away from the calibration location.
