    So I checked my P3P in my GPC hard case, put a bunch of "fragile" stickers on it.

    Should I Calibrate the IMU before flying? Or anything else?

    If you checked it in, you should IMU calibrate as well. Who knows how it's been manhandled. Better not to check it if you can avoid it. And don't check your batteries in ever. Always take them carry on.
