    IMU and Gimbal problems (calling for fellow technicians)

    Hello there, A little backstory.. I bought a Mavic Mini from a person that crashed it, with the intention of fixing it (assumed I could do it, because of the extensive experience in DIY drone world). The crash resulted in a weird gimbal behavior and inappropriately working altitude hold. After...

    Gimbal Bouncing

    Hey everyone, i’ve been having the same problem at least once in almost every flight... the gimbal starts “bouncing”, not vibrating... it literally bounces... The thing i do when this happens is using the re-center stabilizer option in gimbal settings. It helps sometimes, others not. I’m a new...

    Mavic mini gimbal issue after crash

    Hi everyone, Question, my Mavic Mini was crashed. The gimbal came loose and I managed to fix it so that the camera works. But there seems to be one more problem left. When booting the drone, the gimbal moves from left to right, but not up and down. The button on the remote doest respond either...

    Gimbal not sitting correctly.

    Hi guys, Ever since I’ve had my Mavic the footage just hasn’t looked right. The horizon is constantly slanted. I have followed lots of online tutorials and DJI Customer Support have been useless. I’ve tried adjusting the gimbal manually which does the trick until I pan and the gimbal seems...

    Mavic Air 2 gimbal camera flipped backward and stuck!

    So what happened was...I don’t really know, but my friend who borrowed my new Mavic Air 2 started it up in the house and apparently it went forward really fast and he ran the drone straight into the wall. (I know, I should have trusted my gut and not loaned it to him while I was out of town!)...

    Gimbal Protector Modification for Mavic Air 2

    This brief demonstration video shows how the DJI Mavic Air 2 Gimbal Protector cover applies excessive forces to the rear of the camera gimbal when being placed on the drone. When you are out in various situations whilst using the drone, you may encounter unintended forces being applied to the...

    Brand new Mavic Mini gimbal goes wild

    Hi fellow mavic pilots! My Mavic Mini got delivered today and I was stoked to fly it! I got it into the air and well...the problems already started.

    Loose gimbal/camera

    I recently bought a Mavic off of eBay but I’m not sure if something’s wrong with the gimbal. It seems pretty loose when it’s off to the point where if I hold it side ways it turns and hits the side. Not sure if this is normal or not

    Hello everybody! New drone operator here. Bought a refurbished unit from the DJI website. I got a little arrogant and crashed my drone. Pretty big impact. Destroyed the gimbal. I ordered a replacement gimbal off of ebay and installed it myself. When I start up the drone, I am able to connect...

    Problem with shaky footage using the mini

    I recently found that all footage I took the last two weeks is extremely shaky. The issue seems to be much worse on anything that is close to the drone such as the trees to the bottom right side, but anything far away seems to be fine. I think it almost looks like a stabilization issue. Is...

    One tiny o-ring requires whole gimbal to be replaced - what the?

    Hi I recently noticed a bulge in the o-ring that seals the camera lens when a lens protector or filter is put on. I figured that such a trivial part would be available for 10c form DJI but no.............the drone has to be sent away and for whole gimbal to be replaced. I tried a private repair...

    I forgot Gimbal protective cover and turned on Mavic 2 Pro

    I have a Mavic 2 Pro. I am still a beginner to fly drones. One day I turned on the Drone in my hand and put it on the floor, so I took the remote control to turn it on too. That's when I looked that I hadn't removed the Gimbal cover. Whenever I turn on the Drone, the gimbal does a calibration. I...
