    I completed the firm ware 1.2.6 yesterday, every thing went fine. Re calibrated IMU and
    compass.
    I have noticed that the warmup time is longer now. I still have the .bin file on the sd card
    in the phanton.
    Has any one else notice the increased warm up time on your updated firm ware install.

    If you have any input please reply. thanks, rm.

    Did you cool your Phantom down first?

    I will do the cold IMU calibration, as I calibrated yesterday following the firm ware up date, so i imagine the IMU was already hot.
    Thanks for the fast reply to my question. RM

    I brought my phantom to work, put it in our data vault for the day, 65 degrees, Did IMU calibration at the end of the day, following the suggestions of the video above that msinger posted, and I have no warm up time and my horizon is more level than it's ever been.
