Mavic Pro gimbal shake problem

Hi!

My Mavic Pro (purchased May 2017) gimbal has started to shake and randomly move midflight, making any real filming or photography very hard. Looking for other users experiences about this, is it just that I need to replace the whole gimbal unit, or can I get away with something cheaper?

Drone has been crashed once, 1.5yrs ago and after crash no weird behaviour appeared, until now much later. All firmware is up to date, everything is calibrated multiple times. Also got rid of platinum props and went back to originals.

Usually the drone flies normally for the first few minutes, and then the problems start appearing. I have posted a link to video showing the problem very clearly. This also happens when the drone is hovering, so it should not be (only) related to sudden movements.

See video here:

Any help is much appreciated!

Hover the Mavic Pro at head-height and have a close look at the body of the drone to see if it has a noticeable 'vibration' movement either in pitch or yaw. It sounds like you have some legacy damage that's upset the feedback circuits that keep the drone stable. Due to the way that the camera Gimbal is suspended on 'rubber-bands' it feels the vibration and goes into a sympathetic dance! There are two things you can check. First is that the gimbal is suspended correctly:

Then if that is OK - I'd suggest you [Carefully!] carry out an adjustment to the 'Gain' settings - as per this:

This is a long-winded viddeo, but only because it's explaining the problem very well and completely!
