Thunder ~ could moving the drone around in your hand during its boot-up cause issues with the gyros or IMU? I remember on my P2, I had to leave it pretty still on the ground during boot, or it couldn't figure out which way was up.The Mavic has dual IMU's for redundancy as a failsafe as well as 2 compasses. If one of your IMU's is misbehaving, it will automatically switch to the other, but whenever I see that message, it means that the drone is relying on a single IMU, and its best to land asap. Sometimes the culprit is the accelerometer.
Also, best to do a full calibration including IMU, and other sensors and see if the error comes back. If so, it might be a mechanical problem and will need to be addressed.

I asked this question, as I was wondering if the OP, @Jameslavis, who says he hand launches/catches, might be holding the drone while it's initializing.....?Yes absolutely. Sometimes when I start a drone I get an IMU message and it says "IMU Initializing. Do not move aircraft until initialization is complete." Sometimes it takes a few seconds and on some drones alot longer.
