Trying to calibrate the IMU, because it say's it's needed, it stops after 2%, everytime I try to do so. My first flight with this Phantom Pro was Jun 18th, 2015

I have done around 300 flight's but it seems like it has gone old. I'f I can't get the IMU to work, it will be spareparts of it.


Anyone has any ideas?

Hi, we're sorry to know about this situation. I would like to ask if the firmware is up to date? Are getting any error message in the application? During the IMU calibration, it recommended staying away in any possible interferences such as radio frequency or metal objects. You may refer to the link below for our video tutorial. Please keep us posted on the latest progress. Thank you for your support.

I have always running on the latest firmware and I have never ever had any problems. It shows no errors, it just stops at 2% and seems to just "giv up". Nothing more is happening, guess it's going to be spareparts of it...

Did you cool down the Phantom before you tried to calibrate the IMU ?  If not then you get this error or a bad calibration.

Maybe put it in an extreme position or shake it first?

Hi Dioden this is exactly what happened to my P3P a few years ago after a minor crash,  the IMU gets stuck. Now there is a quick fix for this without opening the shell. Insert the battery quickly with sharp force into the phantom and if that does not work, with the battery inserted hit the battery with your palm of your hand a few times ..(I am not joking this worked for me a couple of other pilots) good luck.

I would put a fan on the gimbal to keep it cool.  The P3P is known to overheat during such procedures.

Depending on how much it's worth to you, probably time to upgrade?

Yeah, well I have one more, nearly brand new, has flown 2 times (only) but I have been looking at Mavic 2 pro, seems like it's going be that one, later on.
