    Did you by chance upgrade from the vision to the vision +. ?

    I upgraded the uav and the firmware but didn't upgrade the remote firmware (new remote had wheel to adjust gimbal - old one did not).

    My gimbal was very jerky and acted funny until I updated the firmware. That fixed it.

    If that's not the case did you have a hard landing recently. Sometimes that will allow the spindle to shift and it will think the camera is level when it isn't. There are a few YouTube videos on fixing it.

    Let me know what you figure out.

    Thanks

    Ok. I got you. Sorry I can't help.
    I have seen gimbal calibration in the menu but have not messed with it.

    Try the auto calibration.

    Hit the four small dots in upper right hand corner.

    Hit the picture of the gimbal.

    Hit auto calibration. No idea of this will help but figured it couldn't hurt.

    Crap. I'm the dumb one. Wrong app.
    Let me see I can find it in the Vision app.

    Don't have the vision + with me and I can't get into the app without it.
    Must a shot in the dark but do touchable the gimbal tilt function turned on? The function that allows you to tilt the controller and move the camera. (Little globe looking icon above the up and down Aries on the left of the screen when in the camera section of the app.)
    Just thinking that maybe when first turned on it is getting the signal to tilt down.

    On the app.
    Open the app and select 'camera.'

    If the globe icon is blue (I think) it is on. Try with that off.
    I rarely use that especially with the gimbal controlled by the wheel on the remote.
