    Hi!
    I noticed today after updating to the latest firmware yesterday that when I use the yaw to left or right the camera tilts with it. The gimbal isn't straightening the camera, so the picture is really off level. Like it moves with the drones yaw side movement. What can this be?? What can I try to do to fix it??
    Even if I just use the yaw a tiny bit the camera doesn't level.

    Just like the screenshot below shows: Skjermbilde 2016-04-12 kl. 23.20.33.png

    Do you have "Follow" selected here?

    As stated above by msinger, check if you are in Follow or FPV mode.

    No, FPV mode is when the gimbal doesn't correct for pitch (you incorrectly referred to this as yaw). Follow mode 'follows' the horizon and stays level. Follow Me mode is where the drone actually follows you.

    1. No i have FPV selected, as I normally have. Shouldn't I only use Follow mode when i want the drone to follow me??

    Change to Follow mode and you should be good.

    Thanks all for useful information!! :)
    I switched to followed mode and everything turned out great again. Now I got another issue, I keep loosing signal all the time, even when the drone is a meter from me.. But I guess I'll have to take that in another thread!

    Thanks again guys for all your help, it's very much appreciated! ;)
