    I landed the drone to swap batteries. After powering up got this message. Took apart the drone and tapped the imu but same thing. Has anyone found a solution for this? Should I replace the imu? Are they available? This is a professional.

    No, I've owned it almost two years.

    Had exactly same problem after a battery change. Reloaded latest firmware, open the cover and tapped on the imu unit, still error persists so I took it in today for repairs. P3P

    Please let me know how your problem works out. I experimented with my aircraft on my own and didn't get anywhere. I bought a replacement IMU which did nothing. I have consented to send mine in for repair but have been busy with work and have not got around to it.

    People you guys needed to turn off the aircraft and waiting for the temperature going down a lease 30° maybe the aircraft is a little bit hot and the battery too my opinion put your aircraft in a good balance in the ground waiting for the temperature and turning on back do the IMU Calibration first second calibrating the aircraft and 3 calibrated the gimbal is working trus me
