    Ive done all the updates and everything has been good, go app and all, went out today and when I was flying sideways the gimbal was not levelling up either way, so everything was on an angle, brought her down when I needed to change batteries, then when I went back up everything was perfect, has anyone else come across this intermittent fault

    Sounds like you hit the FPV button accidentally on the first run.

    Of the 2 buttons on the bottom of the controller, one is defaulted to FPV mode which locks the gimbal. You can customize the buttons to do different stuff. The other one points the camera straight down. I can't remember which button does which.

    The one on the left operates the gimbal up/down, I forget about the one on the right, but the gimbal wasnt locked going back and forward, the picture/horizon was perfect then, only sideways, would this be the case if the FPV was locked
