    Hi Guys,

    Just not sure about this so thought I would ask the heads. Recently moved from the UK to Lappland. Do I need to recalibrate the IMU? I have flown the girl and all seems ok, although I did briefly loose Wifi but that could have been trees. I have checked the basic IMU calibration on the software and it would appear to me to be saying no need. That said, I am no expert with these things, any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Craig

    I'm neither an expert but if the software tell IMU calibration is not needed, don't do it. For what I have read IMU calibration is not dependent on your global position as is the compass calibration.
