Hero 6 VIDEO/IMAGE - IMAGE WONKY!!! HELP!!!

When shooting with my GoPro, using Linear FOV, on a perfectly flat surface my videos are all slanted! 

 

I replaced my first Hero 6 as I thought this must have been a one off issue but my replacement is the same. 

 

Has anybody else had this issue and been able to fix?

 

Note that I'm certain it's not a fisheye issue as all the verticals in my image are slanted the same way and the horizontals are all out the same, too. If I rotate the video/image approx 1.2 degrees clockwise (in Photoshop/Premiere) the images are perfect. I've tried this at several locations on various flat surfaces... always the same result.

 

HELP!!!

 

Many thanks.

Many thanks for your reply and question. Attached are the 2 images you requested. One is taken with the Hero 6 on a perfectly flat and level surface, the other is taken with my dslr on the same surface.

 

Additionally, I've added a third image taken from the Hero 6 whilst inside a brand new, calibrated Karma Grip.
