    Here we go, First thing all software updated. IMU calibrated Go app shows Success.
    On every startup IMU initiating takes over two minutes. After 2 minutes OK to fly. I contacted technical support they told me that I have to calibrate the IMU each time I do a start up . Mavic or go app does NOT state calibrate IMU ..It just takes over 2 minutes to initiate. Yet support claims calibrating IMU is normal every startup. What BS . No other issues yet Once IMU initiates all is well. IT just takes over 2 minutes to initiate. Online chat ALVIN was of no help. Just kept telling me to Calibrate.
    Anyone else have this issue ?

    I had the IMU initializing message once for a longer than usual period, but less than a minute. Other flights it's been very short or non-existent.

    Redo the IMU calibrations but this time don't leave the Mavic idling, as it will warm up the barometer.
    Power down the mavic for an hour and leave in a cool place (not the fridge please).
    Here's the trick - after an hour of letting it cool, do the IMU calibration the moment you turn on the MAVIC. The quicker you do it, the less warm up time.

    I do mine early in the morning when its cool. And do it on a levelled surface.

    After several IMU calibrations while mavic is cold it now seems to be taking less time . Hopefully Mavic keeps getting smarter and learns NOT to piss me off .
