    I just did an advanced imu calibration and it took a long time.
    Finally it was done checked and said it was fine.
    Powered cycled it and now it says imu abnormal and I need a advanced imu calibration again.
    So I did it again and I'm still waiting for it to finish.
    It's been a 45 min now.
    All the values look fine. But it's stuck on. 4 bars in the progress screen. I can see the values moving a little.
    I've done these numerous time with different phantoms and. 450s and never waited this long.

    Mine did the same thing and for the life of me I couldn't get it to finish. Ended up turning off everything. Went to dinner. Came home drunk. Tried again and it worked perfectly. No idea to the rhyme or reason behind it. But all is well.

    Make sure it's on a stable, level surface with no movement during the calibration.
    Try not to shake the table or house too much as (I'm told) any vibrations can affect the calibration.

    Looks a lot like you need to be pissed to do a calibration. I'm usually fairly uncalibrated when I'm drunk.

    I think if it doesn't "take" you just need to shut it down and let sit.

    I much prefer the go get drunk version over the sit and wait :)

    Lol! It worked for you too! They should have a warning when you click the Advanced IMU Cal button that states, "Please be quite inebriated if you would like to see this to completion".
