Correct. We already have one reported "fly-away" shortly after a manual takeoff. By manual mode, I'm assuming you mean manual takeoff in either P-Atti, P-Opti, or P-GPS mode. The IMU is critical in keeping the craft level. I could be wrong but I don't think there's any mode where the IMU data is not utilized by the craft.
Okay thanks. Also, curious for a $3k craft, why no range / collision avoidance like the ZANO that costs only one tenth the price?
Even if IMU is giving wrong inputs and data is off, there should be an IR detectors to know that unit is about to strike the wall/garage and for it to override the IMU data, and then back off so it doesn't collide with a wall!
Guys, you need a bit of reality here. There have now been thousands of units shipped. It can be expected that a few of them would have issues. DJI is addressing the "crashes" and "fly aways". We have requested all those units back, right now I think that is about 4. We will analyze the flight data logs and determine the cause. Before this happens we are all speculating. Those of you that are happy flying, continue to do so. I just got my dual controller production Inspire, am I stoked, dang right. Now to upgrade and calibrate. Tomorrow to fly.
