My Mavic 2 flies fine but if I’m not real gentle when flying all the sudden it will show gimbal overload and the camera will be all over the place. I can still control it but not steady. I’ll fly home and sometimes it will find it’s way back to normal again. Otherwise I’ll land it and have to start up again. Thoughts, suggestions? Feels like the gimbal is pretty loose also. I took it off and put it back on to see if that helped. Does the same thing. If I’m real careful and no quick movements it’s fine it seems. Otherwise it don’t take much to get off track.

Sounds like it needs repair. May be as simple as a loose screw or motor position adjustment.

I removed the gimbal and put it back on. It has a few marks from what I expect is from the gimbal hitting. Works fine if I’m real gentle with everything I do. If I go fast and move the gimbal around that’s when it usually falls out of place. Thankfully I can just fly it back. A lot of times the gimbal will straighten itself out by the time I get home.

Thanks for the info though. Definitely needs some type of repair. I did all the calibrations and did one with the Dji assistant. Not gonna give up on it quite yet.
