    If machine tends to drift perform accelerometer calibration on a flat level surface.

    I agree there is nothing in the manual regarding how to calibrate the accelerometer. I had to post the same question as you. Regarding frequency. I only do it if I notice my birds (phantom, Q500, or H) is drifting around or I do a firmware upgrade on the bird...

    I know where on the S16 it is. How do you do it? This showed me nothing.

    For example, will I have to spin this thing according to some blinking lights such as what the lady did in the gps calibration video? How is it done? Not where is it. Thanks anyway.

    When the video has played for 3.16 minutes you can see where/what to tap for all calibration options ;-)

    Tap the tab and it will tell you what to do my friend! I understand Yuneec is not too informative on many things of yet, but just tap it and it will probably just tell you to set on a level surface and do not move, then tap ok, and let it do it's thing, I personally have not done the ACC Cali, as my bird fly's smooth as a babies bottom, Thank God !

    ACCELEROMETER C ALIBRATION

    STEP 1) Place the TYPHOON H on a level and stable surface. Switch on
    the ST16 Ground Station and the aircraft and wait till the RC and WiFi
    connected.

    STEP 2) Make sure the FLIGHT MODE switch is in the middle position.
    Tap the GPS Calibration but ton, and choose 'ACCELEROMETER'.

    STPE 3) Keep the aircraft stable during the calibration process. During
    calibration, the main led will blink red, green and blue slowly at first
    and rapidly afterwards. If calibration succeed. The copter will restart
    automatically. You will recognize the this when you hear the raising
    tone.

    NOTICE: You must do the acceler ometer calibration in no-wind condition.
    IMPORTANT NOTE: If calibration has failed, the Main LED Status
    Indicator will be solid white and you must repeat the calibration
    process. If the calibration continues to fail, either the site of calibration
    is unsuitable or the accelerometer is defective. Refer to your
    Yuneec service center.

    does this mean on step 3 to take off and hover or
    just leave it on the ground ?

    No, leave it on the ground or whatever flat and level place you have it sitting...

    Don't know if it has already been mentioned, but the SD card included with the H has several "How To" videos on it. Calibrations are among them.
