    Ok so I own 2 phantom visions+ the firt one after approx. 40 flights developed a slight camera tilt. This was not do to a crash or hard landing ( hand land always. It was replaced by my dealer N/C.
    Now on phantom number 2 I have the same **** issue.
    I noticed that then putting on the gimbal clamp you have to pull the right side of camera down a little when looking at the lens
    to get it to slip on under the base.
    Im wondering if when this is being done if it twists that shaft that keeps the camera level. as I notice that when in the gimbal clamp it is not level but sits a few degrees off low on the right.

    Yep i have the same issue.
    If i yaw to the left and stop the camera is level.
    When i yaw to the right and stop its of by a few degree's. Left side ( horizon ) of picture is lower then.
    If i yaw back to the left and stop the camera is back level and to the right gives the same result ( left side lower ).
    I can repeat that over and over again.
    There was a period ( between updates ) that issue was gone.
    Unfortunately DJI doesn't provide any means to correct any tilting.
