    Hi All,

    I've looked over a few posts but cannot see anyone with a similar issue (im hot and tired so maybe it's me),

    In a nutshell, when I pan (using left/right motion on right stick), the gimbal tilts 45 degrees laterally and the horison is tilted while panning.

    Is the consensus that this is firmware related, or a possbile hardware issue with the gimbal? Im also experencing the 'radar' movement issue so may turn that off in the settings as recommended.

    i've done the IMU (and regular compass) resets - does anyone know if the IMU has to be reset for each battery, or is it a onetime per firmware update thing?

    cheers in advance!
    Matt

    Anyway, back to playing with my **** at the airfield (NOT flying the Phantom ;-)) - SEE PIC.

    Ok, my bad, literally the post before mine talked about a similar issue while 'Banking'...looks like firmware.

    Probably not why, but Make sure you are not in FPV flight mode which will fly with a banking type camera motion.... In the app settings. I did this by accident by hitting the button on the bottom of the RC by ac I den.

    I had the exact same issue in 1.1.9. Good news is that 1.2.6 fixed that. Bad news is that it unleashed pandora's box with a slew of other problems. That problem is 100% firmware related.

    Cheers for confirmation :)

    Can't wait for new firmware, hopefully not too far away!

    This is not a typical firmware issue. I'd agree with the first response, check your flight mode...easily mistakenly changed to FPV vs Follow. Some have experienced a seeming FPV lock, that an IMU calibration fixed. More info here: http://forum.dji.com/thread-14780-1-1.html

    Many thanks, will give that a go too.

    Do you know if you have to do an IMU calibration for each battery? Trying to determine if the tilt only happens with one of my batteries and not the other but keep forgetting to write down which battery i used! (I numbered them).

    cheers,
    Matt

    AAAAAHHH, C2 button is Follow>FPV switch by default - I bet I'm pressing that by mistake.

    Cheers for the link :) :)
