How to Calibrate the IMU Using DJI Pilot 2


DJI Pilot 2 is the flight software used by the DJI Matrice 300 (M300) or Matrice 350 (M350) RTK and the DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise (M3E). If your remote controller shows the IMU Calibration Required error message, you can follow these steps to calibrate the IMU. 

Important:

  • Do not calibrate your IMU on an uneven surface,  this will negatively affect the calibration.

  • Be careful with the propellers as you tilt the drone during the calibration. Make sure to rotate them out of the way before resting the arms of the aircraft on your work surface.

For the Mavic 3 Enterprise, Remove the RTK Module by unscrewing the fasteners. Failure to do so will prevent you from completing the calibration.

Instructions

1. Power on your remote controller and aircraft. From the home screen, tap Enter Camera View.

2. From the camera view, tap the three dots in the top right corner of the screen and then tap the Drone icon to enter the Flight Controller Settings menu.

3. Within the Flight Controller Settings menu, scroll down and tap Sensor Status.

4. Tap Calibrate IMU below.

Follow the on-screen instructions, which prompt you to position and balance your drone at different angles while the IMU is calibrated. Make sure to rotate any propellers out of the way to avoid putting too much stress on them.

Be sure to take extra care in handling your aircraft during this process. The aircraft will rest in each requested position comfortably.
