Mavic has performed flawlessly up to now. No crashes no problems. Suddenly an occasional gimbal error accompanied by loss of manual control. Gimbal moves around erratically on intermittent basis. I have read several threads by people with gimbal overload issue who repair with new ribbon cable. But, do I have something else going on because loss of gimbal control has been accompanied by loss of Mavic control? The Mavic will take off normally but will then hit a spot where any stick input it will make it spin in circles in about 6 foot arc while gimbal goes crazy. When Mavic goes into this mode, it cannot be flown manually. I have to hit RTH which has worked fine twice but I do not like to rely on RTH because most flights are in windy conditions over water. Any ideas?
