    How long does it typically take to complete, once on a flat surface,etc...?

    I wish they gave you a progress bar like the IMU Cal has...

    Just a few seconds, it should go thru a little dance and wind up level and straight... that's what happens when I do it.

    Not during start up....I mean when you hit the Gimbal Auto Calibrate within the app.

    Still only takes a few seconds?....seems odd
