    Hi guys,

    I am having an issue with the level of the vision plus camera not being horizontally level once again. I'm aware of the fix and have done in the past but hoping this isn't an on-going issue.

    Could it be caused by powering up the unit with the gimbal lock still in place? Any other tips to stop it from happening would be great! I have also read that I should do a full imu calibration but that doesn't seem to have fixed the issue.

    Thanks in advance

    Which remote controller do you have? Does it have the thumbnails at the bottom left corner? If so you may try calibrating the RC thumbwheel and see if it centers then. With the Phantom 2 that's the only control over the camera as far as calibration that I know of. The potentiometer the only control that I know of that levels the camera in the gimbal.

    Ive had a imu advanced cal fix a gimble shake once! The potentiometer as RoyVa said should get the level close. Your arms not bent right
