    Try putting it outside if it is cold or even in the fridge for a while to chill it then calibrate the IMU. There are a few threads on this here. ;)

    IMU calibration in cold condition fixes this issue. I had faced it but could easily resolve it.

    Yes, it could cause condensation but after calibrating let it sit in a warm dry environment to dry out. Condensation also occurs when you go from a warm area to cold outside

    I have found if you do the calibration right after powering up it does good. Can't do the IMU after doing the RC as it has gotten to warm by then. The IMU has to be done when the craft is first powered up to get a clean IMU calibration.

    Was experiencing same warm up delays mentioned until I left Phantom outside in 35 degree temps for 20 minutes or so followed by IMU calibration. Flew the following evening in cool weather without any warm issues whatsoever. This appears to be the "fix" my Phantom needed.
