    Are you really using an iPad Mini (the original)? If so, you'll need to get a faster device.

    Did you verify that the firmware installed properly? Did you try calibrating the IMU?

    What happens after restarting your mobile device, restarting the aircraft, and attempting to do the calibration again?

    How many updates did you do? From what I understand if you were below 1.32 then you needed to do that one first then the latest. Going from anything before 1.32 directly to the latest firmware will mess up some of the modules. Just a possibility.

    Accelerometer is dead.

    You'll need a hardware replacement.

    Unfortunately, looks like you got a lemon. Does happen unfortunately.

    Other people are apparently fixing this by smacking the back of the aircraft. It would be interesting to know what the shop did to fix yours.

    It seems that way. I haven't had the pleasure of trying that fix personally.
