    Look at your gimbal and you'll see it can't spin that much.
    It was your Phantom doing the turning.

    Ditto what Meta said. That was the bird rotating.

    The camera cannot spin. Does it consistantly yaw on ascent? You either were yawing without realising it or you need to run through a full recalibration sequence...rc assistant first, the phantom assistant including a full IMU calibration, followed by a fresh compass recalibration in the field. See if doing that helps.

    The IMU calibration was fine. Today the same thing happened. As we went straight up with the drone, it would spin slow.Went up 436 feet, coming down it was fine.
