Hello, yesterday when i was taking a long 4k video, my gimbal acted strange. Have anyone anyone else experienced similar thing? Or what is the cause of this? This was my 4th fly so far and the gimbal problem scared **** out of me o_O I thought somebody has shot my drone. Later when i analysed video i noticed that it happened right at 9minutue mark. The mavic is brand new, not a second hand machine.

The exact same thing happened to me! I saw the propellers from both sides. And then I lost half my screen too. What is this??

Had exactly the same happen to me a week ago. If I remember correctly the drone was also unresponsive to inputs until I restarted the controller.

That looks like what mine is doing. I bought mine new and it has a total of 6 hrs n 24 min fly time. I'm fixing to do an icu calibration then gimbal calibration.

When your video hits 4gb in a segment, it can cause a gimble reset. As someone mentioned, shorter videos or lower res. It’s a limitation of SD cards and the formatting system

There seems to be more than one reason for the gimbal to act weird.

I get the gimbal reset even when not recording. But never when I have a Nd filter on there!?

Happen to me on Sunday and it had nothing to do with filming because I wasn’t filming. Brought it back and landed and restarted the drone and then all was well.

Mine has done this as well I did what Thunderdrones sugested months ago and I don’t believe it has done in since! Actually all I did was switch from 4K to 1080 and all was good,first time was very disheartening I assumed the whole drone was doing a dive!
