    I am just getting started with a new p2v+. Is it possible to 'zero' the barometer/altimeter (as viewed in dji vision app), with the aircraft sitting on the ground? Mine usually shows something less than +10 feet agl, typically +5 feet agl. With the related DJI Vision Ground Station app, that makes low altitude waypoint selection somewhat more fun, mathematically!

    If it is possible to reset the altimeter (before each flight), how is it done?

    Thanks,

    The alter meter is set at zero with home lock at that location.
    Do a full calibration of the IMU in software of the drone.
