I think no one mentioned that we have to tilt up and down, left and right and so on the drone when calibrating the IMU.  I don't see any video explaining this either. On the other hand, I read many users unable to calibrate just like me. I stucked in the step 2 for two days due to this lack of information. Just make sure you follow the pictures shown in the guideline.

I'm one of those goofballs who put their drone in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before doing the IMU calibration.  I DO put the drone inside a plastic garbage bag though in an effort to keep condensation from forming.  I've done this a dozen times with no issues and the warmup period is dramatically reduced when prepping for flight.  

Makes a huge difference if flying in the winter too.  Before I tried the cold calibration, I was trying to fly in bitter cold weather... it seemed like it took 10 minutes for the IMU warmup.  After that I tried a cold calibration... dramatically faster IMU warmup.
