    Just got a used P3A that was shipped from Florida to Michigan and I'm going to do IMU calibration. I know it needs to be done on a level surface, but does it matter what material the surface is? I have a metal welding table that's nice and level, but don't want to mess things up. I know compass calibration shouldn't be done near metal, but does it affect IMU calibration? Any help is appreciated.

    Metal will not negatively affect the IMU calibration process.
