This is about the 3rd time I have powered up the Mavic Pro and the gimbal just jumps around indefinitely.
The guard has been removed. Powered up the drone first, RC second, headset third. Have a picture on the attached cell phone, but the gimbal is just spining from max to min in all axes on a random basis. Grabbed the gimbal for a second to stop it......it stopped for 1-2 seconds, and then took off again just randomly jumping around.

Only way I have been able to overcome problem is to power off all parts, and then re-apply power in the order I have listed above. I was in Photo mode once and in Video mode the other times this happened. Is there a "fix" for this problem? Or at least a method sort of total power down to get the problem to stop? Much thanks.

One thing I found was that it only happened when I had filters attached. Come to find out I wasn't pushing them on flush with the lens. That tiny 1/8" offset of the filter caused my gimbal to do multiple resets. Take a look at this youtube video.
