    Don't know if this is asked before or answered but i am getting IMU issues. it just initializes but never stops the initialization process. Just says wait till IMU initialization finished dont move aircraft till done. But never finishes. Whats going on here? usually it happens when i go for second flight (new battery) right after 1st flight. its like it needs time to COOL down? cause after a while it works fine, Never had this issues before doing multi flights back to back. Would a IMU calibration help or other problem... Just asking before i go ahead with any fix attempts.

    (battery temps were cool room temp fully charged)

    Have you had a crash or very hard landing?
    This is usually an indication that you have a damaged lightbridge cooling fan with possibly a fin missing.
    This throws the fan out of balance and causes vibration s which means the IMU can not calibrate/initialise.
