    My Vision is flying perfectly , but I've only done about 6 flights. I see that IMU calibration should be done as part of routine maintenance. When should I expect to calibrate the IMUs ? There is a DJI video on calibration but it shows a Phantom 1, I presume the Vision is similar.

    The other question I have is, my vision is stored in its case with battery in. Should the battery be removed whilst not in use ?

    Many thanks

    Hi firstly the IMU is carried out through the assistant software, you will know when you need to do it as it will actually let you. If it doesn't need it a message will come up telling you that. You normally only need to do it after a hard crash as well as a compass recalibration.
    Secondly I always unplug my battery it's always good practice. Batteries inevitably leak power its a bit like a laptop battery you should never leave those in either as eventually they hold less and less charge. My case won't actually let me put my phantom in with the battery still plugged in.
