    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...

    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...

    Vibrating gimbal and Mini not pairing

    My Mini's gimbal is malfunctioning with a fast vibration of the camera when I power it up, it also no longer pairs with the controller (I use an iPhone 11 with it). I updated the Mini software and Fly apps last week, and tonight took the Mini up for a quick flight. Everything was normal, it...

    I had some unnerving gimble glitches yesterday...equipment failure?

    Have you seen this issue before? Any idea what causes it, and how to make it never happen again? It really drained my confidence and made for a nerve wracking rest of the flight. No fun! Problem? I am still new to the mavic pro (but not drones in general); looks like i have right around 5hrs /...

    Gimbal needs to be calibrated often

    I've had my Mavic 2 Pro for a couple years, rarely if ever calibrating the gimbal, but lately it's been getting misaligned (crooked horizon) often. At my last shoot, it happened 2 or 3 times: horizon was crooked, I ran calibration, then it was fine. I haven't had any collisions or anything...

    DJI Mavic mini 1 camera stuck. Touches bottom plastic piece. How do I fix it?

    Pretty much what I wrote in title. It seems to be touching the plastic part under the gimbal. Is it something I can fix myself?

    No video after flex cable repair

    Hello. I am a relatively new pilot and bought a Mavic Pro with the infamous Gimbal Overload error, and a flex cable. I successfully repaired the flex cable, and it stabilizes, but I lost the video feed. I get no errors from the app, and am pretty sure that the camera itself is OK, so I presume...
