    Other than editing video and stills in post, is there a way to fix a 1.8 degree camera tilt on the Vision +? I tried opening the gimbel arm and checking to see it was aligned properly (looks like it is but a 1.8 degree tilt would be tough to see on such a small part). IMU calibration (advanced) does not fix it either.

    Have had a couple hard landings but no major gimbel impact that I am aware of. Now I have a plexiglass shield as well.

    Sure wish there was a gimbel adjustment tool.

    Other than removing the back and adjusting manually there is nothing that is known to work. And once its adjusted it doesnt always stay unless you use an adhesive.

    +1 Fix is below.

    If you haven't crashed and all of a sudden you have tilt, try to take up catch landing techniques.
    Bump landings can cause the tilt. I cant prove it though. You have an axis-shaft that is held by tiny pressure. Just a bump will dislodge it. Keep doing this frequently and it will come loose and misaligned. It will then try to re-align in mid flight and dance and then tear the cable.
