    So I crashed phantom from about 20 feet, everything works fine except every time I turn it on the gimbal is off horizontally which is fixed by recalibrating it but have to redo it every time I change the battery. Is there any way to troubleshoot or fix that? Thank you.

    What's up with this? I want to post a new topic but can't. Sorry to latch on to this thread.

    Same issue with mine, but I also have a bent yaw arm. Have to re-cal at each startup. I haven't tried this myself, but see the link below for a possible fix. The vid is on a Phantom 2, but I would assume the function is similar for a P3, and would seem to explain this issue.
