    If I do an IMU calibration, should I have any accessories added powered ON? Like camera, gps tracker, video tx, gimbal etc. on my P1

    Yes, power up all accessories and enjoy LIFE while waiting for the IMU to calibrate.

    Ya know, if TJ sees this, it might be heading to OT.

    Bravo Monte55, bravo.:D:D:D

    It's not necessary because the IMU calibration is telling the MC what level is.

    Some accessories might make the bird go out of level when they are switched on.

    It might go to OT because I am here, and in order to justify switching on all accessories because they might make the bird go out of level, I will have to make up some really long paragraphs of BS. :D

    Truth is, I think the IMU does a bit more than just telling the MC what level is.
