    No. You can greatly reduce the time by doing a cold IMU calibration.

    Cold calibration. Leave it outside or pop it in the fridge. ;)

    Wife wasnt happy about the white soft plastic in the bottom of the oven. The remote dosnt connect in the microwave either so cant do IMU in there either. Tried the freezer but i got too cold in there.

    Just kidding. Will it connect inside the microwave?

    Mine takes at least a minute to warm up will do the cooldown and try IMU again. Thanks for the tip.

    I was having the same problem with my P3S. I put it outside on the table in 38 degree F temperature for 30 minutes. I had the controller and app ready to go. Put the battery in and did the IMU calibration. Maybe 20 seconds now and it is ready to fly.
