Was flying my MA yesterday was breezy but not to bad . Was about two minutes into flight when it seemed to sort of “stagger” got 2 Imu errors . One said to try fly backwards and forwards other said to return and land and calibrate compass .

it steadied right up after this and I flew it quickly back and landed no problems .
Have not had time to check it out and try it sense then ( we were at a remote location ) and had to leave in a hurry .
What should I look for and what caused this ? ( a gust of wind etc etc ?)

Compass and IMU have two separate functions, probably best to calibrate both and then check the status.

MA1's are pretty safe as they have 2 IMU's and 1 compass

Flight log might show up more details of the errors.

Here is a screen shot of the two errors I got . It seemed to fly backwards on its own for a bit looking at the flight path .

all looks fine and it flies fine during a small test flight yesterday . Any ideas ?

Was it windy on the error message flight, could the AC have been buffeted past a 30 degree tilt ?

You can convert the flight log using these instructions

It was windy nothing to much but was squally . I was thinking that’s what happened a gust of wind struck it .
I’m going to try and figure out the flight log thing and see what I find
