    I'm loving the P2V+, but my gimbal is a few degrees off. I know there is a long thread about the gimbal not being level, but it went off topic. Apparently, there used to be an option to adjust this, but for some reason it's been taken out. Also, I guess you can't just pop the top and hook the NAZA-M directly to the NAZA-M software to fix this.

    Things I've tried:

    -The unit is level when initialized
    -Basic and advanced IMU calibrations
    -Reverting from 3.2 to 1.8 then back to 3.2
    -Compass calibrations.

    On my perfectly level counter at home, when I start the engines, looking at another perfectly level counter, you can see it's not straight even at a short distance in addition to a noticeable slant in all my photos and video during regular use.

    I'm going to call DJI but I'm afraid they are going to exchange, I'd much rather just fix this especially since I know how easy the fix used to and probably should be. Anything else I should try?
