    Last two times flying I noticed the video was canted to one side so today I started taking a closer look at the camera mount and it had a permanent tilt to the right (looking at the front of the Phantom). So, I took the Killer RC gimbal clamp off, and tried resetting the flat side of the camera rod to the correct horizon. After several tries I got it set correctly again. Funny part is I have not had any crash, hard landing or any other incident that would have caused the camera to begin acting like that. Although it's fixed, anyone out here know what might have caused this?

    Rexter that camera is just pressed over some minor piece of rod.
    Even vibrations can cause it to misalign when that fit isn't snug anymore.
    I would suggest you do some kinda gluing of that rod and camera housing.
    The how to can be found on this forum, it involves some locktite or so.
    It will reappear after a wile if it can be moved that easy.

    Thanks! I got it all reset, leveled and put a dab of JB Weld on the outside of the housing on the rod. Ought to hold it for a while.

    Been There Except I Sent Mine Away & They Replaced The MC & Compass With The New Model, No Issues After That.
