Bummer, the Spark kept flying toward the trees, I kept maneuvering away, but it was like it wanted crash!  Bummer.  I pushed down, it went up.  Display indicates it's at 200 ft when it wasn't more than 4'.  I finally dropped it in the grass. :-)


I decided I should recalibrate the IMU.  I started the calibration and nothing happens.  5 or 8 minutes later it's still flashing green on the rear LEDs.

How long does step 1 of IMU calc take?
How long is the entire process?

Thank you,
Max

Here's a video that shows how the IMU calibration should work:

What msinger said.  My IMU cal. took about 3 or 4 minutes.  You have to physically place it on the various ends when prompted.  It isn't always easy to tell while doing it.

Hi, sorry for what happened on your aircraft, additional information, you can try to directly connect the phone to the drone via wi-fi as well and try to do the IMU calibration again and I would suggest avoiding hazardous environment if you're flying your aircraft then check if you're getting enough GPS signal as well. Please keep us posted for further updates.
