    Camera vibration

    My Mavic's gimbal and camera suddenly started to go nuts on start up, this would stop and then repeat every 30 secs or so (my Mavic has never had any crashes or hard landings and has only been flown about 8 times) I replaced the ribbon and put it all back together and it appeared to fix it...
