    So...my P3P arrives tomorrow (Im majorly excited)!
    Anyway I have been busy reading manuals, watching videos, reading forums etc...
    I have a question;
    Assuming my new unit arrives with 1.1.9, and I dont upgrade (I dont plan to)...and the IMU doesnt show any issues....should I still perform a cold IMU align?
    (I ask because some say the factory does it best...)

    All responses appreciated!

    Yes. Do an IMU cal and a gimbal cal. Do both on a completely level surface.

    If you are using iOS, fly the flight sim until you get comfortable.
