IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) calibration is another important step to ensure accurate and stable flight for DJI drones. The IMU is a sensor that measures the drone's acceleration, rotation, and orientation. Calibrating the IMU helps the drone accurately capture and process this information, which is essential for stable and safe flight.
Here are the steps to calibrate the IMU in DJI Fly:
1. Find a flat and stable surface: Look for a flat and stable surface to place your drone on during the calibration process. It's important that the surface is level and not moving.
2. Open the DJI Fly app: Open the DJI Fly app on your smartphone or tablet and connect it to your drone.
3. Navigate to the "Calibrate" section: Tap on the three dots in the top right corner of the screen to open the main menu, then select "Calibrate."
4. Select "IMU Calibration": Tap on "IMU Calibration" and follow the on-screen instructions to begin the calibration process.
5. Place the drone on a flat surface: Place the drone on the flat and stable surface you found earlier. Make sure the drone is level and not moving.
6. Follow the on-screen instructions: The DJI Fly app will guide you through the calibration process step by step. Follow the instructions carefully and make sure the drone remains still during the calibration process.
7. Complete the calibration: Once you have completed the calibration process, the DJI Fly app will display a message indicating that the calibration was successful. You can now safely take off and fly your drone.
It's important to note that you should calibrate the IMU every time you fly your DJI drone in a new location or after a firmware update. This ensures that the drone's IMU is correctly calibrated and prevents any issues that may affect its accuracy and stability during flight.
