    So my firmware updated flawlessly. Decided to do my IMU calibration. Went to stick my phantom in the fridge... and.... There's no room in there! I'll either have to remove my 12 pack and let my soda get warm... or not super cool my phantom. Man serious first world problems here...

    I don't see what's funny about it. This is a serious issue. OP have you considered drinking all the soda in one go while it's still cool while you wait for the Phantom to cool down in the fridge? This is the only possible solution I can see to this disaster.

    I just tried this Trumple. I drank 4 sodas and puked on my phantom. Thanks for the awful advice. I'm going to show my flight record to dji and demand they fix it for free.

    Easy solution... Run cold water in the tub... Immerse for 15 mins... Should cool it down enough

    Ok I'll try it.. Hopefully it will get the soda off it. Since its wet should I do a bag of rice calibration for a week before the imu calibration?

    The only logical thing to do in a situation like this is to take a trip to your local appliance outlet and buy a new fridge for the Phantom. I see no other way around that....
