    Two issues - the second video is definitely not at 1000m. Secondly, I've never had horizon issues - it appears that some of the terrain in the photos is not level itself - very hilly and mountainous.

    They probably needed to run a gimbal calibration.

    mine was a little off last night... re-did the IMU and gimbal calibration. Fine now.

    ...the gimbals are one of the weakest links in the system, I find - it's NEVER quite straight - and the corrections last like a few seconds and revert - calibrate 'til the cows come home - don't matter, still crooked all the time - easy to fix in post, but, umm, hello DJI, I paid you like $2K for a whole p4 set-up: SO WHY DO I HAVE TO FIX IT IN POST!!!??? HELLO?!
