    I just got my Phantom 3 P last week and now I'm trying to calibrate the IMU but can not find the sensor tab anywhere. I am running DJI Go app 2.5.0. I've watch 4-5 videos and I followed the directions as they each said but my app does not have a sensor tab that I can find.
    Can anyone advise

    What do you see at the bottom of the "MC Settings" section of the DJI GO app?

    Finally figured it out. Turned everything off , took the battery out and waited a few minutes, started everything up and there it was so I calibrated the IMU.
    Got the thing last week and have been watching hundreds of videos and reading everything I can so I don't have any problems. Been reading about a lot of people crashing one first flight or soon afterwards and to me it looks like they made a few important mistakes and I read where one guy took off with a 35% battery and crashed. Even I know better than that.

    Like everything in life -- we learn from our (and others') mistakes.
