I shot a film earlier today. After final edit I noticed that the horizon looks a few degrees off. Sure the earth is curved but at 90m high?
Would any of you know if this is normal or is the gimble a wee bit off?
This is my first video so bare with me.

a, gim-bal
b, it's easy to adjust, check the manual, there's even a shortcut for it while flying - you can press down one of the C buttons and use the thumb dials to adjust it.

a) stupid auto correct.
b) I never read anywhere in the manual that has that. Just looked again and nope.

Thanks for responding though. I did a gimbal calibration and that seemed to do the trick. Don’t know why it didn’t work the first time.

Your gimbals horizon is off. Adjust gimbal roll until the horizon is level. Do you know how to do that?

Not manually no. Just know how to do the gimbal cal. I did find the option to manually adjust the Roll and Yaw but that didn’t seem to help until I did the calibration for the second time.
