    my view from FPV and the video itself is slightly tilted. Not sure how to change the gimbal horizon.
    I heard IMU Calibration. Is there not a dial to control manually?

    I also know to launch bird on flat surface. But, lets face it not all surfaces are flat.

    In the Pilot app, go to:
    Settings > Gimbal > Adjust Gimbal Roll


    You can do the IMU calibration, then do a Gimbal calibration on a level surface, but that has not fixed everyones issue.

    First try IMU calibration. The trick is to get the craft as cool as possible before the calibration is done. Remove the battery and let the copter sit in a cool place. Make sure you remove the battery.

    Next, get the app connected to the tx . get the tx powered on before touching the craft. The key is to get into the calibration menu and start it as soon as the craft is powered on. All this must be done on a level surface.

    Doing the above will also help if you have long warm up periods. When cooling down the craft and starting calibration when the craft is cold, will give you better calibration data over a wider range of temps.
