    I have to recalibrate the IMU. What type of surface should I have inspire on? Solid colour?

    Hard flat surface. The critical thing is being level during imu calibration.

    Hey blade strike, any regular flat surface is usefull or is allways better to those "bubble" inclinometers?

    Thanks all. Once it warms up (-25c or more for the last week) I'll calibrate.

    Mine prefers calibrating on blue surfaces but if blue isn't available then something bright and summery, but not too slutty.
