    Hi all, i noticed that when I took off from the slight incline of about 20degrees that when I started the motors they were revving higher than normal. Is this normal?
    I also notice after looking at the footage the horizon was not level. Does the camera automatically correct the level on take off.
    I had calibrated the compass before the flight but did not calibrate the gimbal before this flight or on the day. Previous and after this flight on the same day I had taken off from level ground and all was good no issue with motors or horizon..
    I am still on 1.1.9...P3P. old skool!!

    You really need to turn the P3P on and let it initialize on a flat surface. You'll probably notice that when you take off one or more of the motors will over-rev trying to level the drone. It does sound normal but to be honest I would try and at least initialize it on level ground. pretty sure that will sort out the levelness of the camera / gimbal too.
