The weather conditions where OK but a series of mistakes resulted in a not so great footage.
Shooted in 1080P instead of 4K and had a severe tilted horizon problem (13º) that had to be corrected forcing me to do a 40% zoom on top of the 1080P video....
Will try again in some time to see if i make it right.

What a magnificent place. It looks great in your video, despite you being a little disappointed with it. If you repeat the flight with the improvements you would like to achieve, it will be spectacular

Which drone are you using? Have you tried a gimbal reset/calibration perhaps?

Im using the Air2S. No i have not. That Will be my next step, calibrate the gimbal. It works ok with the drone on the hand, i tilt in diferent directions and horizon is leveled but once in the air, if there is wind, it results in tilted Horizon.

I have found. with the lighter drones. wind is a significant factor at 50 metres height, or more - even if the wind at ground level is almost zero.  This sometimes  gives a tilted horizon - particularly during changes of direction.

The tilt is more evident when wind is facing sideways on the drone, thats when the drone have to compensate. There where parts in the circle that the horizon was leveled, thats when the wind is from the front or rear.

That does sound logical.  How about reversing the direction of sideslip - with the wind instead of into it?

As you can imagine wind conditions vary, and ive flown severeal times with wind, but dont remember to see such an agressive tilt as on this video.
There are some things i want to try. Two of them are calibrate the compass and the gimbal. They have not been calibrated for a long time, i only remember doing this when the drone was new that is back in May.
