    I've noticed that when filming, if I yaw then the horizon seems to tilt but will slowly recover once I stop. I have a level horizon otherwise its just a problem when yawing. If I go really slowly it is less noticeable but that isn't that easy. Are there setting to help eliminate this tilt?

    Make sure you are in follow mode not fpv.

    There is no setting to fix this. It has been a widely discussed issue so you should find plenty to read about if you search the forum.

    I know this is not what you want to hear, but those who suffer from a drifting horizon are rarely able to find a way to correct it short of sending the P3 back. No amount of calibrations will fix it, but sometimes a new FW update accidentally fixes it for a lucky few.
