    Around 5 mins as far as I remember. I also recall it hanging on me before and I had to do it again.

    I updated firmware last night, and did the advanced IMU calibration. Took into field today, and performed the calibration dance. Lift off to 12 ft hover and noticed some drift. Brought it back down for round two of field calibration. Second time I did it horizontal and vertical over my heading, thus keeping it in fairly tight area. Lift off second time stuck perfectly in one spot.

    Thats way old skool! You want to calibrate it like you are spinning it on a dime. Plus doing the compass dance just makes you look like you are on weekend release from the funny farm to members of the public :lol:
