Just took mine up and noticed some gimbal horizon tilt which of course drives my OCD crazy. Did a gimbal and IMU calibration and that did not seem to help. Did a firmware refresh and that did not help. On some clips its fine and on others not. Seems to correct itself somewhat when tilting the camera down a bit vs looking straight at the horizon. Also seems to happen more while in D log vs normal.  Any suggestions? My previous Phantom Pro 4 V2 and Mavic 2 suffered from a tilted horizon issue to some extent. Shame they have not seemed to fix this. I know I can fix it in post but should not have to. Just strange that in normal mode vs D log it happens more.

I’ll keep an eye out for it, but I haven’t noticed it on my M3.

OP, are you saying that manual calibration of the gimbal does not work for you? It works for me.

Hi there, I am sorry for any issue you encountered. May I ask for a video of the issue with your Mavic 3 for further confirmation? Look forward to your early reply.

Hi  I will upload a clip when I get home this evening. However after going through several clips I only noticed two that had the problem. Both after the M3 turned and started its RTH. Both recorded in D-log. So maybe both clips were because of wind direction and facing the Sun on the RTH. Maybe just flukes and not a drone issue. I will do some further testing when I am off tomorrow. Thanks

Thank you for your reply on this case. Please keep us updated on the issue. We are very concerned about this.

Hi @cloudwalker! I just got my M3 and it is doing what you describe. What did you learn in the past couple of months? I am concerned and ready to return it - I flew my M2P and M3 at similar heights and took photos a 0 and 180 degrees to check horizon and the M3 is inconsistent. Not cool.

Yep. Another bug that certain shills here might deny. I’d send it back since it could be hardware related.
