Judging by the pictures you provided, the IMU Calibration would probably fail.

If you are doing a IMU calibration, it's safe to do it inside your home. Just be sure it is performed on a flat, level surface such as a table.

Pay attention to the screen and the DJI logo displayed on the Spark.

There is a point (usually step 2) when the app tells you to flip the Spark, but the Spark looks the same no mater how you flip it and some pilots miss this step during the IMU calibration process and the calibration "fails".

Good luck. 🙂

The Spark will sit up on it's side / head and then you'll flip the Spark on the other side or butt.

This is the part that the pilot misses because the Spark looks like it didn't move in the image, but if you pay attention to the DJI logo on the Spark, it's clear that the Spark has been moved and is waiting for you to do the same.

Here's a video from DJI that may help.

I suppose you know that you have to rotate the drone while the test is underway. look very carefully at the photos it just does not sit there
