Leaning horizon !

Hello guys,

I am new on this forum, and very happy to be there !
I just got my license here in Belgium, so I bought immediately the camera E90 for my H520.

This morning, I made my first tests to check the quality, in both photos and video.
I wanted to check also the programmed flight on the ST16.

So my question is there : I made 4 programmed missions, and the strange result is the same on the 4, photos and video !
The picture here below was taken on a mission with an ROI programmed on the road crossection.
I absolutey don't understand why the horizon is leaning so much !
I made the same mission with an ROI on the same place, but with a video instead of pictures. The result is the same.

I imagine that when you program a fligth with an ROI, the H520 is supposed to keep the camera horizontal, pointing to the ROI ? No ?

Do you have any idea ???

Thank you very much in advance...

Ok, thank you for your answer.
I bought the camera directly from Yuneec, I will contact the support team.

Just to clarify your situation:
You said " I imagine that when you program a fligth with an ROI, the H520 is supposed to keep the camera horizontal, pointing to the ROI ? ", but did not mention a normal flight without programmed camera control.

Does it make level photographs when the drone is not in flight, or in modes other than ROI?
(ROI = POI?)

Yes, it is the same. This is the last picture I took, in manual flight.
I must say that I did not try with the drone being not in fly... I will try this !

I tried to find a solution on Internet yesterday, and a lot of people speak about the gimbal calibration... Is it necessary before each flight ? (Because I made it once when I have put the camera the first time on the drone), but I did not do it before this flight. So meaby if the drone was not on an horizontal ground, the problem could be there ?
I mus say that I would prefer to find a solution because I did something wrong than to have to send the camera back to Yuneec for service !

ROI or POI ??? I suppose it is the same : Region of Interest (that is what is mentioned on my ST16 and in the User Guide... POI : point of interest ???

Well... Stil the same problem.
I put the H520 on a perfectly horizontal ground, and made a Gimbal calibration.
Here is the first picture taken on the ground : already leaning !

And after take off, this is the result !

Bad !

So I can't see what I am supposed to do to solve this, except Yuneec Service !

Any last idea before I call them ???

Thank you in advance.

It looks like there is a problem with the latest firmware. Mine and my client also have this issue. He have also CGOET and od IT perfectly leveled.

New E90 camera mounted on an old H520 I guess that has already flown.
When mounting the camera and pairing it, did you then calibrate the camera lying flat on the desk? and possibly then a horizon check.

Yes, I have put the H520 perfectly horizontal, and made a Gimbal calibration. Nothing changed : the problem was still there.
I got an answer from the technical service of Yuneec : I have to send the camera for repair !
Before doing this, I will ask them if it could be a firmware problem...
