    Just curious… Can anyone explain why my horizon is tilted for the first three or four minutes of my flight and then it becomes perfectly level? - I had a hell of a flight today; 1.5 miles across open Atlantic from one island to another. 12 kt cross-wind. Flawless, thanks to all the instruction found in these forums!!

    Assuming you're on Android, the last update saves your gimbal adjustment. The next time you start up the app, it slowly drifts to whatever adjustment setting you had.

    Personally, I don't take off right away. I do my checks and during this time the gimbal gets level. At this point, I actually start my flight and it is rock solid.

    Hi tricky… Nope, Squirrel island and Fishermans Island, both off of Boothbay Harbor Maine.
