Any way to keep the max camera pointed forward?

Hello,

 

When i am riding my mountain bike and have the max in 360 mode, if i take a 180 degree turn, then the camera turns and looks at me instread of staying straight ahead, and i have to manuall turn it back in post, which is a huge headache.  it also doesn't keep the horizon straight.  any fix to this?  

 

i've been running it in hero mode, and i like it, but what is the point?  if that is how i can only make it work may as well send it back.

I am really hurting for this feature too. I mounted the MAX to a car for a hyperlapse of a road trip and the smoothing had the car swinging around in the frame like crazy. I really wish they had a way to disable this so mounting it to a vehicle can lock the orientation. Especially once track season starts again!

I just found the ability ot disable it in the video options. Strange that I scoured every possible menu before and didn't see it. New firmware update maybe?
