    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

    Crashed, purchased new gimbal, gimbal has the shakes.

    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...

    Dji Mavic 2 Zoom Gimbal Broken

    Hi All! New to the group and unfortunately I come bearing bad news. I was pushing my luck with my dji zoom and now I have a warning saying “gimball motor load to large” and “gimball obstructed”. The gimball almost rotates a full 360 but then stops on its final stages before being centre again...

    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...

    Gimbal Rebuild: Would you rather...

    I have inherited a Mavic Pro from a friend who bought a new mavic after his got stepped on. Everything works except the gimbal. (Including the camera). I have replaced the ribbon cable to no avail. If you were in my position would you rather buy the gimbal with camera and no vibration plate...

    Gimbal off centre?

    I had some issues with keeping direction. I thought it was wind (it may still be), but then I started examining the gimbal. And I found that when my Mavic is positioned on a straight line (line right in the centre, between feet and the feet aligned to another line positioned at right angle to...

    Mavic Air Gimbal Dial Is also moving drone?

    So a few weeks ago, my Mavic Air started doing this weird thing. When it’s up in the air, and I try to adjust the pitch of the gimbal, the gimbal moves, but the drone also moves sideways, in which ever direction the dial is turned. I tried recalibrating a few things, but nothing worked. Any...

    Mavic 2 pro Gimbal problem

    Hey peeps, I had a Mavic 2 pro, everything was fine until the day came. My Mavic 2 pro fell into a freshwater lake in Arkansas. I sent it to DJI but they wouldn't even touch a water damaged drone. So i didnt know what to do for the last 6 months and just kept it stored...

    I broke the clip used to fix the "Gimbal vibration abnormal" error

    So the title says it. I broke the clip off (where the arrow is pointing). Is there anyway I can stabilize it? (Duct tape etc.)

    I crashed my mavic 2 pro... camera faces down.

    Everything else on the mavic works fine. The camera stays facing down when off though. I can move it in any direction manually but will center itself facing down. When I turn it on it positions itself normally and works normal. Only when I fly and move it around the camera drifts and faces down...

    Mavic Pro Camera is facing Down to Zenith

    Hi, my ribbon cable flex was damaged (without any crash) so i ordered a new one and changed it with various youtube videos. The classic "gimbal motor overload" message is not poping out now, but the camera is facing down looking at the zenith (-90° i guess) *the remote control is calibrated *i...

    Gimbal knocking while calibrating

    Hi Mavic Proers! I had an accident with my bird and the gimbal was damaged. I bought a gimbal and replaced it but got a knocking sound so I read some forums and though it should be the gimbal ribbon. I purchased a new ribbon and replaced it but I still have the knocking but I guess in a...

    Mavic Pro Gimbal tilts up on its own randomly - solutions? It's Out of Warranty.

    Problem: Gimbal tilts up by itself randomly even when sitting on my desk. Other than that it works as expected most of the time. It's just a bummer to have the gimbal tilt up in the middle of recording a shot that you then have to do over again hoping there will be no tilt. Was unit in a crash...

    Another crash thread...

    Not too long ago, I crashed my mavic pro. It was about 14 feet up when it got hit by a football and fell to the ground. The battery came out and the propellers were cracked. I thought that was the end of the issues though. Turns out i broke the ribbon cable for the gimbal. I replaced it and the...

    Please help! 0x800000 error, no Gimbal Status option in the Options menu and no SD card.

    I purchased a second-hand Mavic 1 pro recently with the owner stating that it needed a gimbal ribbon replacement. It was a good price so I figured I could try and fix it as a project. I have an issue after replacing the gimbal ribbon and video cable. I still get the 0x800000 error but the...

    Hi, So I accidentally crashed the drone. Directly after the camera feed went black and the gimbal did not respond. I opened the gimbal it up and the ribbon was broken. Replaced that but now it says in the go 4 app, Gimbal status n/a. No video, no gimbal reaction when startup or when trying...

    Gimbal Overload Error - Works when keeping sideway

    Hi there, I constantly get Gimbal Overload errors after start up (Never had a crash or anything similar). The funny thing is that the gimbal works normally when booting the Mavic keeping it sideways. In that case it works for a couple of minutes, after that it starts to go crazy and twists and...
