    IMU won't calibrate

    After updating to the latest version, and playing around with the flight simulator for a while, I was going to update some settings when I noticed a compass calibration warning. The calibration didn't seem to work in my office so I took it outside where I also noticed an IMU update warning which...

    IMU Readings

    A lot of tutorials show how to proceed with IMU calibration, and that;s great! But, I can find nothing on what the readings should actually look like when completed. I proceeded with an IMU calibratation after having installed he latest firmaware. The process was a breeze. But after having done...

    Why does an IMU need to warm up?

    This is a "I'm curious to know what's going on under the hood" question, not a problem report. I'm writing some stuff about the Mavic Pro and would love to include some technical details on what's happening during IMU warmup. Does the IMU actually need to be at a prescribed temperature to work...

    New Mavic - IMU calibration hangs up and does not complete

    I am operating on the Phantom P3P theory which recommended calibrating a new unit, and the IMU calibration doesn't seem to complete. It's been going for 20 minutes now, which seems like a LONG time to me. Similar problem with firmware update. Not sure what to do about it ... any suggestions...

    IMU Calibration Camera Shake.

    When doing a IMU calibration DJI states that you don't want any vabration, but when I am doing one and I am at the stage of pointing the camera to the sky the camera knocks around and causes the Mavic to virate very badly. Am I doing something wrong or do I need to put the Mavic in a different...

    Shakey camera in sport mode - normal or something I can fix?

    Hi all Sorry for my various posts looking for help.. I think I've 'almost' got everything to do with my Mavic figured out, but there's a couple more things I want to sort out. The first is this: When I fly full out in sports mode, there's a bump that occurs during filming. Well, there's a...

    Slow IMU initialization and Sensor errors?

    I can't be the only one having these issues, but I did not see it mentioned anywhere. After updating the firmware for my Mavic Pro, about 70% of the time I turn it on it sits at "IMU Initialization. Please do not move or turn off aircraft" comes up and sits there for at least 5 minutes. And...
