This is the sequence of my normal first power on of the day. The sequence is about 30 seconds. Any idea why the gyro bias is out of range initially and then gets better?  Is it safe to fly once in normal range? I have performed several IMU calibrations...after several hours cool down.

Move it outdoors and have a look at the sensors reading again. Even try palm lift-off via gesture mode.

What inputs are going to the IMU?  Is it just the level surface the drone is on?  Is it getting anything from GPS or other source?

It looks like it is sitting on a coffee table or something, is there a lamp, or anything nearby?,

What do you mean by "first power on of the day"? Does it only happen if you power it on at this particular spot?
In my experience, (and I might be wrong), this should not happen with the IMU. A lot of times, I get this message for the compass, and all I have to do is the move the Spark a couple of meters because of magnetic interference, but I never had it for the IMU. That's why I would contact DJI support, they will tell what you can do.

This happens wherever I power up...inside, outside, on a table, on the ground.  Always the first time powering up...if I fly, power off, put in new battery, power back up I don’t get the message.

That is not right.. something is wrong.. you should almost NEVER have to calibrate the IMU..  Compass maybe but not the IMU..

Sir, please try to calibrate the IMU outdoor and put it on the flat. If you continue to fail calibrating the IMU, please contact our suppport and start a case: http://www.dji.com/support Thanks for your support.
