    I have a P3P, since buying I have updated all FW and done a compass calibration

    I always check the IMU values before take off (along with battery temp/voltage etc)

    I take off from my case which would not totally be level (it is on grass) the values I consistently get are

    Gyro Mod = 0.01
    Acceleration Mod = 1.00
    Compass Range 1400-1550

    Should I be concerned at a 0.01 variance on the Gyro ? I have read and most people say 0 so my question is how much difference does this value make. I have tried multiple surfaces which I believe to be level and I get the same set of values each time.

    I have P3 4k. IMU values are blank and it is impossible to calibrate. Any ideas? I almost lost it during flight when it behaved erratically. Hardly managed to land.

    Take it back, if it's defective... No need to accept faulty merchandise.

    Sure? Too bad, I'm overseas and here they don't have any kind of support for dji

    Where did you buy it from? please contact them and find out about returning it, as it is not functioning as advertised...
    You need to resolve the issue.
