Got my Mavic Pro the beginning of June. Been enjoying fly and taking pics and video but sadly my drone has been out of commission since Sunday. Tried refreshing ac software and factory reset with no luck. Getting a "MC error" and "IMU error". Was successful with firmware but cannot calibrate IMU. It will not get past the 1st part. Going to try and contact dji today or tomorrow .

Welcome to Mavic Pilots! :)

my drone has been out of commission since Sunday
When it returned home, did it land normally (other than it being 3 feet away from the home point)? Did you drop it, damage it, attempt to install new firmware, or do anything else in between flying and when the main controller error appeared?

The drone was working fine before the last flight. I am very careful not to drop and the firm was up to date. Tried a refresh and factory reset multiple times but IMU will not get past the 1st cal test. I decided to send out for repair yesterday.

When doing the IMU calibration, you need to reposition the Mavic after each step (as shown in the video below). Some people think it gets stuck at the first step after that step has completed and the Mavic has not been repositioned.

Sweet. Quick question for both you and Kid Spike. Do either of you know of a FB group for drone operators in our area? I couldn't find one and thought about getting one going.
