    Hi all,

    I'm taking my P3a from the UK to Turkey in a few weeks and will be flying in quite a mountainous area.

    Is it advisable to recalibrate the imu for the new location when I get there and then recalibrate again when I get home?
    Obviously I will calibrate compass as usually.

    Thanks for any help

    Geographical location has no influence on IMU. (Unless the baggage handlers drop your P3 from a great height!)

    Just calibrate the compass and have a good time :)
