Hi Guys, Just a quick question or two. How often should you do a compass, gyro and IMU calibration? and does it need doing when the drone in new and has never been flown before?

Thanks ...... Rod

Almost never.
Compass calibration is only needed if you add or remove accessories.
IMU (which includes the gyro sensor) should be done if you have a bad crash.
For a new drone out f the box, no calibrating is necessary.

You will find differing views on this subject.
Post number two is correct advice.
