How to Calibrate IMU of the DJI Phantom 4 RTK

How to Calibrate IMU of the DJI Phantom 4 RTK

This is a helpful Heliguy™ tutorial that'll teach you how to calibrate your DJI Phantom 4 RTK IMU. Learn how to calibrate the IMU with these simple steps.

1 minute read

The DJI Phantom 4 RTK will need the IMU calibrated from time to time if you're switching locations frequently. The IMU is a critical component to keeping your drone straight and level in the air.

Typically, a IMU calibration prompt will be displayed on the main screen. However, if this doesn't happen you'll have to do it manually through the Advanced Sensor Settings.

Let's jump into this fast Heliguy™ tutorial and learn how to manually calibrate the DJI Phantom 4 RTK IMU.

 

  1. Remove Propellers

    OcuSync Transmission System The DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 features a new dual-band OcuSync transmission system, automatically switching between 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz. The controller identifies which frequency has the lowest interference and switch to provide the clearest transmission. The new OcuSync also allows wireless connectivity with the DJI Goggles and Goggles RE and the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0. Removing the restrictions of wires and allowing a reliable connection. DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 Remote Controller The Phantom 4 Pro+ V2.0 remote controller is available with a built-in 5.5” 1080p screen. The ultra-bright screen has a brightness of 1000 cd/m2 increasing usability in direct sunlight. The screen’s brightness is twice as bright as the majority of smartphones and tablets. The remote controller features a microSD card slot, speaker and microphone and an HDMI port. The remote controller has a battery life of up to five hours. Propulsion System The DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 features an all-new quieter propulsion system. Newly designed 9455S propellers and FOC ESC drivers result in a 4dB noise reduction. The sinusoidal current is also improved, increasing the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0’s stability in flight

    It's best to remove the propellers before you begin the calibration process as you'll be rotating the DJI Phantom 4 RTK in later steps.

  10. Follow Onscreen Instructions

    OcuSync Transmission System The DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 features a new dual-band OcuSync transmission system, automatically switching between 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz. The controller identifies which frequency has the lowest interference and switch to provide the clearest transmission. The new OcuSync also allows wireless connectivity with the DJI Goggles and Goggles RE and the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0. Removing the restrictions of wires and allowing a reliable connection. DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 Remote Controller The Phantom 4 Pro+ V2.0 remote controller is available with a built-in 5.5” 1080p screen. The ultra-bright screen has a brightness of 1000 cd/m2 increasing usability in direct sunlight. The screen’s brightness is twice as bright as the majority of smartphones and tablets. The remote controller features a microSD card slot, speaker and microphone and an HDMI port. The remote controller has a battery life of up to five hours. Propulsion System The DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 features an all-new quieter propulsion system. Newly designed 9455S propellers and FOC ESC drivers result in a 4dB noise reduction. The sinusoidal current is also improved, increasing the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0’s stability in flight

    You'll now be taken through a series of onscreen instructions which you must follow to calibrate the DJI Phantom 4 RTK.
