    The horizon leans quite a bit in photos and videos. How do I correct this?

    Re-calibrate in Go app with your bird on a flat surface. In flight press and hold C2 button under RC and turn right wheel to adjust gimbal tilt.

    If your tilt is always on the same side and persists like my P4, I had to calibrate manually in Go app after I did a flat recal, for me I think I had to adjust to -.7 , this gave me almost perfect and I sometimes have to tweek in flight. I find in higher winds it tends to tilt more.

    Same with my p3s. I just adjust as needed when I am in flight. Calibration didn't work when I tried it.

    Calibration will not correct it. I've read every thread on it and you can fix it in flight but it won't last. Hopefully it's not too bad like mine.

    Can't believe ups took so long to deliver
    Hopefully will be shipped back to me next week

    We might have to learn to live with it...
    Very common problem, and in 90% of the cases, not been solved!!

    ...ditto - have had my p4 for three months and horizon leveling is always an issue no matter how many recalibrations, adjustments, etc. - I wind up just adjusting the bad tilt in post with subsequent degradation of image quality - sigh - I guess we're all stuck waiting for that "perfect" p5 next year...
