    Ok....i run my H thru gimbal calibration and all says level. But in flight as i rotate tge gimbal or drone....cannot remember which, the gimbal tilts to the right making the horizon not level. This has happened several times. Am i doing something wrong?

    I would suggest doing the calibration again, but before you start that, make sure the camera is facing straight forward by pushing the 'Pan' toggle forward, then to the middle position.

    I would use that position all the time for calibration. Just make sure the camera is facing forward when the calibration begins. I've seen nothing in any instructions saying this, but it seems like the right way to go, to me.

    How were you turning the camera? Using the 'YAW' stick, or the rotation knob? I'm guessing the rotation knob next to the Pan lever. And is the pan lever in the forward or middle position? Looks to me like you need to do another calibration, but make sure the camera is facing forward when you start the calibration.

    This was using yaw...rotating the aircraft

    Pan switch in middle....i really shouldnt matter. It should detect tge aircraft level and keep horizon level...that is what this part of the gimbal is for. My gopro gimbal on my other drine didnt do this....always stayed level no matter what the aircraft did.

    I would do the accel calibration, then the gimbal without moving the craft.

    When people say to calibrate on a perfectly level surface, it really is quite meaningless because it is not known if the IMU, which is buried inside the shell, is level to gravity. The landing gear alone could throw it off quite a bit.

    Well, that certainly is a strange one. I have been quite impressed with the gimbal because it usually does remain level no matter how the craft is turning, etc. Most other complaints were that the camera didn't face forward after installing the latest firmware. And most corrected the problem by doing the gimbal calibration.
    I hope it gets solved for you.

    On mine I calibrated the accels but forgot to do the gimbal. After taking it up I noticed the horizon was tilted, so redid both at the same time and !viola.
