    I am using P3P with 1.7 on aircraft and 1.5.8 on rc and 2.6 go app even in the earlier versions I see the message sir craft warming up for atleast for half min. I understand it has some meaning when I'm doing it for the first flight of the day after a break. But it happens sometimes when I change batteries after a flight. I keep seeing it even though there is 17 to 18 satellites. Annoying attyms as 100% battery becomes 98 even before take off because I have to wait for it...


    Next question : How to avoid birds during flying at lower altitudes, it's annoying I have to raise altitude just to escape from them.. I fear killing them and the aircraft if it hits them I think it might fall down

    Do an IMU cal. when aircraft is cold; that will shorten warm-up time. See other IMU threads for reason.

    It's not actually warming up. It's booting up and acquiring satellites. Normal.

    This video explains how to do a cold IMU calibration and why it will resolve this issue:

    Some shots demand flying low.... That's when problem occurs... Anyway there is no solution to it I think
