IMU won't calibrate

Hello,

I purchased a spark after my Mavic took a hard crash and I needed a cheaper vacation drone.

I used it about 5 flights on vacation back in the winter. When I got home I tried to fly again and i'm advised in the APP to do an IMU calibration. I do this and it succeeds but the warning for IMU calibration simply stays and prevents take off. I calibrate the compass as well but all this does is nothing and I now own a drone for very short flight times and it already is acting up. Between My mavic with its Vision errors and my Spark having IMU errors and non flies i'm loosing faith that DJI makes drones that are user friendly. I feel we spend more time updating and calibrating drones then flying them.

Can anyone in Drone land shed any light on why my spark after such short time is not allowing IMU calibration?

I don't want to spend hours sending in reports and paying money all over to get something fixed that simply shouldnt need any fixing at this point. Its literally new.

HElp.

Hi there, sorry for the inconvenience. May I know  If you are receiving an error message? Did you try to restore the factory defaults of the aircraft using DJI Assistant 2? What is the current firmware of your aircraft? Please check this link to download DJI Assistant 2: (https://www.dji.com/spark/info#downloads). Kindly check the video tutorial below on how to process IMU calibration.

I've found it critical that you have a flat, smooth, and level surface for calibration. A good calibration cleared up any problems I had had with it going to ATTI mode.

Hi.

If you start the spark and let it "warm up" for one to two minutes, does the IMU warning stay or does everything come back to normal and you can fly?

My drone is doing this: at start ,IMU calibration required, gyroscope bar is fully red and two minutes later it goes in green , and I can fly without problem...

There is no need to do any calibration unless it is really necessary.
They say  if you cant use them, give it to someone else to use !
