    Crashed my ol' P3P to smithereens, so I thought- why not replace it with the P4. No, I haven't crashed this one yet, but each time I land -3 times now - I get this IMU warning. So much for dual IMU's? Is anyone else having this problem? Btw, I wait a minute or so, it goes away and I have successfully flown with no IMU warnings, just getting them on landings (no auto landings).

    Have you done the calibration as it suggests?
    if not why not?

    if you did do it do you STILL get message?

    I get an IMU warning every time while it is warming up , if thats what you mean. Then it goes away after a min or so .
    Perhaps I need to calibrate again.

    Yes. Do it when your Phantom is cool. This video explains why:

    Just tried the cold IMU calibration as stated in the video. Seemed to work ok and connected quicker . I will know more when I get out and fly (hopefully tomorrow) .

    I get the IMU Error immediately upon Landing; not the IMU warming up message. I will try to run a calibration, but I've only flown this thing 4 times. I didn't IMU calibrate on the P3P until I had it about 5 months. Never a problem or an error warning.

    DJI should add that link in their manual.
