    Q: Is there any way to do an IMU calibration in the field using just the remote?

    I did an advanced IMU calibration at home and the Assistant said all was well. I packed up and headed out. Started up on site and got the power up self test fail (red-green-yellow) and CSC startup sequence won't work.

    Not that I know of, but it might be possible if you have the BTU and use the NAZA mobile iOS app (which should work over a groundstation connection too).

    Tried the DJI NAZA and Assistant iOS apps, but they don't seem to be able to connect to the P2 via BTU. Disappointing.

    Anyway, got home after a disappointing no-fly trek to the New Hampshire coast, plugged into the laptop, did a full IMU recalibration and all is well.

    Thx
