    My P2NV was flashing the IMU calibration lights, so I plug it into my laptop and go to the IMU calibration and it says I need to do an advanced IMU calibration.
    Problem is, it never finishes.

    Any tips?

    Steve sometimes it will not finish if the Main controler is to warm. Sometime when I try, I get that stupid message and just click on it and proceed. All usually goes well unless I have been doing updates and calibrations then try the IMU it runs aroun but won't finish until I cool it down. I have to start the IMU cal fresh. Give it s try, may or may not work for you but I have done this seven times so now I touch the top of the quad and if it's warm to touch I let her cool down so I can get a good Calibration. Be sure to level your quad front to back and left to right.

    Thanks for the tip.
    I rebooted the PC laptop and the Advanced IMU calibrate finished in less than a minute.
    Go figure..
