    Last night I was flying around sunset - not far and not for long, I was just drawing down batteries before going on a trip. I was at about 25% battery and taking pictures of the sunset over the top of my house when all of a sudden I noticed the "fpv" display on my iPad mini was at a about a 20 degree angle (don't remember which direction). I thought to myself, well this is good that it happened while I was taking pictures since I'll have a better record of it (I was not recording the display unfortunately). I took another picture and when the simulated diaphragm opened up the view was level again! Later on when I looked at my pictures on my MBP they were all straight and level! I can't explain this one, unless it was so brief that it was between images and taking an image corrected it.

    Anyone else ever experience this?

    Do you mean something like this...

    This first vido was taken from the replacement Phantom. The original was replaced because of the tilting problem
