    Hi,

    I am facing a very strange issue:

    I have to calibrate my camera every time I turn on my Phantom 3...

    I have tried to IMU freeze calibration, getting the tilt issue on the camera to go away, but after I turn off the phantom, I have to do a new calibration...


    Please help...

    Do you get a message popup that says you need to recalibrate, or?

    Nope... The issue is that the horizon has a huge tilt, ND I have to recalibrate the gimbal 2 times in a row...

    But I have to do this every time I turn on the Phantom

    There were some reports that doing the gimbal calibration while hovering had favourable results - worth trying perhaps.
