    Weird gimbal issue by motor maybe

    Hi! I recently tried flying my drone, and then gimbal started making weird noises and the video is jello (ing?). Here is a video I have edited to show the problem in detail. I had no crashes that could connect to this issue. (video uploaded to onedrive, no need to sign in). The video details...

    Mavic 2 Gimbal Issues

    crashed the Mavic 2 a long time ago and just got around to fixing it. Only thing left that is causing an issue is the gimbal. Camera works fine in both video and photo but the gimbal wouldn’t move. So I’ve been going through resetting it with Joint Coarse etc but when I run the script the...

    Mini 3 pro Gimbal Calibration after new gimbal replacement.

    I got mini 3 pro and replaced its gimbal. Now when I previously replaced it, I did firmware refresh and it automatically got calibrated and was perfectly fine. Now this time no firmware refresh is working and there is no way to calibrate it like how we used to do in Mavic 2 pro, Air2/s. Anybody...

    Gimbal problems

    When I fly my Dji mini 2, gimbal slightly tilts, sometimes it tilts enough to make video look like a horrible mess (lately there have been 20+ mph winds) so I don’t know if it’s the wind? Even if it is the wind, the gimbal should still be correcting it‘s position. I’ve already tried calibrating...

    Gimbal Motor Overloaded

    Welcome to my story of Gimbal Motor Overload. Around 4 months ago I starting getting the dreaded GMO pop up while flying my Mavic 2 Zoom. The camera wouldn't stabilize and thought that's not ideal, packed it away and decided to sort it at a later date. Couple of weeks later I took it out for a...

    Gimbal Shake

    Hi All, This is a relatively new Mini 3 Pro and it seems to be having gimbal issues. Doesn't always happen but I caught a video of it today after running the calibration twice on it... Any suggestions? I am using the Freewell clear lens on it for protection. Any suggestions on further...

    Air2s Gimbal moving by it's own.

    I purchased a DJI Air2s about 2-3 months ago from a local store. So at first I didn't notice this issue but later on It became more noticeable and annoying. Whenever I fly or even connect the RC to drone, the gimbal starts moving up and down on its own. It some times fixes by it's own then...

    Gimbal Stuck Faced Down

    I crashed my Mini 2 and snapped a piece in the gimbal housing. I disassembled, added glue, set it over night and it was intact. After reassembling properly, at start up, after the gimbal does it’s checks, it’s almost as though the camera gives up and ends up facing downwards. Any ideas?

    Frontal Leds affecting the video - A2s (Solved: video compression problem)

    I saw this weird flicker in the shadows in this footage and I think the frontal leds are reflecting off the propelers (they're dark, but kinda reflective too). You can see it better from the waveform. Has anyone found a way to avoid this? Is there a "night shooting mode" somewhere in the...

    Air 2S gimbal stuck

    I had a slow sideways crash at 5 feet. After witch the gimbal is getting stuck when I pan down to 68 degrees. Once there it becomes overloaded and is stuck. It will then jump to 30ish degrees until finally resting to zero. I have normal movement from +24 to -68. It appears to reach 90 degrees in...

    PTZ CABLE OR FLAT RIBBON CABLE?

    Hello guys! I'm new into posting any threads but here's my first. I've got a problem with my Mini, when I turn it on, it works normally, the gimbal starts moving/checking all axels but it gets stuck to the right/left. I had a small crash, where I did get sand in the gimbal. After a deep clean I...

    Gimbal is tilted but NOT stuck

    Hey all! The gimbal on my mini 2 always tilts to the right. It doesn't get stuck, it works keeping the image flat when I fly my mini sideways, but the horizon is always slightly unlevel. Tried calibrating it a few times, also did the IMU calibration, doesn't help — at first the horizon is...

    DJI Mini 2 Crash and gimbal now shakes

    So the inevitable happened to me last week and I crashed my drone breaking my dji mini 2 arm and my gimbal has started shaking up and down which is the more pressing issue for me. DJI fly will not let it recalibrate and I cannot rotate up or down. I contacted DJI support, but they were very...

    Mavic mini gimbal issue.

    Greetings, So the other day my gimbal stopped working out of nowhere, I did not crash or anything either. It does its normal start-up but once that is done it won't do anything, can't control it from the remote either. If you put your ear up to it, it makes a scratching noise as a dirty cd...

    Can the Mavic 2 Zoom and Pro gimbals still be interchanged in 2022?

    I’ve seen online that the Mavic 2 Zoom and Pro gimbals can be interchanged. However I haven’t found any updated info on whether this is still possible in 2022. I’m worried that DJI has locked this feature behind firmware (like apple does with parts from different phones) Anyone have recent...

I tried manual calibration gets stuck on 20%. tried IMU calib and MAG calib didnt help. the offset manual fix in the app is up to 10 deg for each...

    Camera not level when flat

    Hi all, I've been noticing an issue with my M2P, which seems to be getting more noticeable - the camera when pointed straight down doesnt seem to be fully level/flat. I believe this is the case because: 1) in post production when rotating the photos, there's a tilt, by which one way looks...

    Sudden Gimbal movements

    Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great start into 2022! I have noticed something weird with my Mavic Air2 several times now. I've had it for half a year now and never crashed or dropped it. Since last month, the gimbal sometimes suddenly tilts down while flying backwards. I will try to attach...

    Mavic 3 Horizon (Gimbal) Tilt

    Hi guys, Unfortunately, I could not fly the aircraft yet due to rainy weather. That didn't hold me back though from unboxing it and setting it up. I also made some recordings indoors. What I have noticed is that the gimbal (horizon) of my Mavic 3 tilts to the left and to the right by itself...
