How often should I calibrate the imu? I'm aware this calibration should be done on a flat level surface, should I also calibrate it outside or is inside ok? Also do I need to be away from metal and other magnetic objects?

You should calibrate the IMU after unboxing a new Phantom, after a crash, after installing new firmware, and when the DJI GO app tells you to do so.

You should calibrate the IMU inside, on a level surface (check it with a level), in a location where the Phantom will not be disturbed during the process. Metal objects will not negatively affect the IMU calibration.

Thank you so much!
