    If you tilt your head a little to the....

    It is just a quick adjustment in the gimbal settings to remedy that.

    The real question is if any calibration or adjustment will hold for very long. Many reports that that they don't.

    I realized I might had done gimbal calibration on non flat surface yesterday prior to flying

    I did a Imu and gimbal calibration on flat surface today and took a picture
    Look improved to me but let me know if I'm wrong pls

    Sorry we need to see the horizon ocean is best.

    The only way to tell the surface is level is to use a spirit level.

    You can a) get the surface the phantom is sitting on level (I.e a table)

    Or b) get the phantom level by propping up the legs with cards or cardboard

    Mine was doing the same thing. I had to send it to DJI. My Phantom 3 was dead on! I hope they can fix it.
