Hi Simon,

this probably happens, because you have not calibrated the magnetometer.
It is easy to check, if not calibrated properly you will see the psi
estimate moving when you tilt the quad.
If properly calibrated, the psi estimate should stay the same,
regardless of roll/pitch angle.

To best calibrate the mag, align every axis along the local magnetic
field, once in positive and once in negative direction while logging
the data. This way you get the real min/max.
You can also plot the values using the realtime plotter to see if you
have the correct angle and didn't miss the minimum/maximum.

Cheers, Felix
