I find my videos all suffer from rapidly tilting images when I am changing direction (Spark)
Full calibrations have been successful in Compass and Gyro's
Sudden tilting to the left or right when inducing yaw or aileron on cornering when I would have expected the gimbal to correct this.

If in P mode be sure gimbal is set to Free.
In Sport, you have no choice, it will always switch to FPV mode.
Nobody knows why, that's just the way it is.

Thank you but what I really meant is how to stop it from rolling? Tilting is when the camera looks up/down and this can easily be adjusted. Mine is set to 15.
I did wonder if changing the gimbal from FPV to Follow or rise versa?
Sports mode is always difficult to fly in especially on cornering.

i believe that's just the way it is.  I fly forward in sports mode, but if filming, i switch back to normal before i bank.   Annoying...but i've learned to live with it.

Sir, please ensure that there is no wind around your spark. Using FPV mode may help this situation. Thanks for your support.

Thank you for your answer. What I have found is this tilting only happens when i am in 'sport mode' >31mph and not when in slow mode.

yep.   As AeroMirage and Cookster pointed out above,   that's how the Spark works in sport mode.

The gimbal is locked straight ahead and will bank, roll, tilt exactly with the body motion.   It's just as if you glued a fixed camera to the front of the Spark.

In P-Mode,  the gimbal compensates for the motion of the Spark, and presents a stabilized image.
