    So today I went flying and my gimbal now has a lean to it (it's not parallel to the horizon by about 4 degrees). I always use the gimbal lock when not flying and l don't have the shakes. It was fine last night, and no crashes or drops. Any ideas? Any way to calibrate the gimbal?

    First try Full IMU calibration. If still leaning possibly a hardware issue.

    Make sure you are not in FPV mode too.

    I'm not but I think that may have something to do with it, last night I was flying in FPV mode, and switched back before I landed. this morning when I took off i wonder if that didn't have something to do with it so I switched to FPV flew a few circles, then switched out of it to see if that corrected it, unfortunately it did not. Ill do an IMU calibration and see what happens, but I did fly a whole battery, so ill have to wait unit the phantom "cools" down.
