The angle will vary with the lens AOV, but I use about 12-15 deg. with my lens A camera. It will take some trial and error, and will still be a bit of a problem with the slight pitching that occurs in flight.
But it also depends on what is the more important portion of the frame you are trying to capture, obviously. In this case, the sunset would be the prime area of interest for me, so I wasn't that concerned about ground detail. Aiming the camera down in this case to brighten the ground detail would wash out the sunset detail in the clouds even more than it already is.
