    simple question

    Can you start a IMU calibration when this is warming up ,or must I wait when warming up is ready ??

    It's best to do it immediately after turning on your Phantom. And, you'll see a shorter warmup time if your Phantom is cool before you turn it on.

    So when warming up is busy I can start calibration.
    I thought I had to wait until warming up from IMU is ready, and then start the calibraton

    You should start the IMU calibration as quickly as possible.
