    Here are the usual times to do it:
    • When you purchase a new Phantom
    • After installing new firmware
    • After a crash

    I can also add to the above answer that you can calibrate IMU / gimbal when the horizons are very tilted or you experience many other issues, heavy drifting and so on.
