    Hallo everybody, a question for you experts. Is it important or not to have the Phantom standing on a level surface when switching it on and while warming up? I am asking since I plan go flying in a very rough field where I will only be able to hold the Phantom in my hands during warm up and before hand launching.
    And if it's not important, can it just be in any position, maybe on a side or vertical...?
    In other words: does the Phantom calibrate something / read some initial parameters when it is switched on?

    No. It's only important when you're calibrating the IMU.
