    Hi everyone,

    I was flying my P4 on Balboa Island earlier today and this happened: (keep an eye on the horizon line)



    This has happen during my last few flights, but this was the first time it was caught on camera.

    Any idea what's going on with the gimbal?

    In flight, you can try pressing the C2 (right) button on the base of the RC box, and simultaneously moving the jog-wheel (right front of RC box). This will tilt the gimbal so you can eyeball a correction. (Tip from Bill Nichols on his Youtube channel - a must-watch!)

    Long term, best to recal. IMU.

    I had already adjusted the gimbal tilt after lift-off. If you watch the video closely you'll see that the horizon begins to tilt as I'm flying, it's not static.

    I'll recalibrate the gimbal and see if that works. Thanks for the replies! :)
