    I've been searching around and can't seem to find a fix. My horizon is tilted so the left side is slightly lower. It's pretty minor and has been present in several of my videos, although I just noticed it tonight. I've found several other people complaining of the same thing although I haven't seen any fixes. I've tried an advanced IMU calibration and I will test it in the morning. However, I have done calibrations in the past and the tilt is present in past videos.

    There's no calibration for it. At least not yet.

    But I wonder if you would have any luck adding a shim (well, a washer) to one screw of the gimbal mount to try to skew it a little. If you just try to raise one side up the gimbal will obviously just do its thing and tilt it back to what it thinks is level, but if you can mount it with a slight forward diagonal tilt, you might get it level.

    I'll give it a try. I just need to find something pretty thin because the skew is pretty light. Thanks!
