    If it were me, I would use whichever app I was the most comfortable with, and I would definitely calibrate the compass. I am not sure about IMU.

    You don't need an app to calibrate the P2 or P3. You can toggle the flight mode switch 5 times and use the LED flight mode indicator. After togging the switch it will go yellow, rotate horizontally. Lights will go solid green and you rotate vertically. Its much faster than using an app.

    From P to A to F and back to P five times, or from P to A and back five times?

    P --> F --> P --> F (etc.)

    The rear LED lights will turn solid yellow when the Phantom is ready to be calibrated.
