    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...

    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...

    Gimbal issues

    Mavic Air gimbal overload, what are your thoughts about this method? It worked for me..

    So I went to fly my new MA, I think it would have been the fourth time to take her out. So far all of my flights have been uneventful, no crashes, no hard landings nothing that would cause problems. I got to my practice spot eager to try out some settings. I slowed down the stick response speed...

    Mavic 2 Zoom - Gimbal/Camera Question

    Sometimes when stopping or letting off the sticks suddenly at full speed the camera will force itself down or shift down from the stop, causing me to have to move the camera to regular position using the remote. Just happened the other day when stopping. I don’t typically stop suddenly, but let...

    Gimbal Settings are missing

    I'm using GO 4 v4.3.4(689-GooglePlay). Under Settings, I don't have a Gimbal icon between the Aircraft Battery icon and the three dots for general settings. I have a Mavic 2 Zoom. Can you tell me what I'm missing? Using Android and it shows no update.

    Changing mainboard and gimbal compatibility

    Hi all, I remember reading in a post somewhere that to solve the camera gimbal error status/compatibility issue when changing to a new gimbal the replacement gimbal must have the same ID prefix stamped on the gimbal circuit board. Can anyone point me to the post or can confirm this is true? I...

    DJI inspection in China - feedback on internet looks scary

    Hi everyone. The gimbal on my MA is sticky on the roll - it gets a bit stuck off axis, not good for the shots i want. There is no care refresh package available in my region, the authorised repair center has sent the drone logs in, and DJI has advised that they want the drone sent to them for...

    Tree surfing

    This is a mix between a gimbal, a mavic pro, and my custom race platform. I'm pushing the envelop with what I think is palatable; this stuff makes a lot of people sick :) I'm getting better though... Music: Take it Easy by Jetta (matstubs remix) Please feel free to comment!
