Is your camera level or pitched forward slightly when you start motors?

    I had a small crash over the weekend, and got things repaired. I just noticed that when I start the motors, the camera is pitched down very slightly. Maybe 5 degrees. I seem to recall that it was perfectly level on startup before. Maybe it's my imagination.

    I've looked at photos online, but there aren't any perfect side views where I can tell if the camera is angled down or not.

    Thanks for any replies.

    The problem was the gimbal main circuit board. After calibrating the IMU and doing a couple of other things, I swapped out the circuit board and the camera was perfectly level and centered.
