    I travel to California once per month and hope to bring my P3A in the summer months. If I get a case with wheels, will rolling it on a typical sidewalk jack up my IMU calibration? I'm afraid the thump...thump...thump will shake things up too much even if I go slow. Too paranoid?

    I would avoid shaking things up. Big rubber wheels might help but best bet is to use backpack.

    No such thing as too paranoid.

    I would think if you're craft is cushioned adequately, it would be fine, but that's just my opinion.
