Hey Guys, just got a new Mavic Pro, flown for a couple of weeks...perfect...but then, was going to new location so thought I would re-cal all setting, everything was fine until the gimbal cal, gets to 51%, hangs and back to the app, no overheat messages. Have done complete resets, removed batteries, turned all devices (remote, drone and tablet (apple)) on and off etc etc, but no luck in getting past 51%. The camera is working fine, sitting fine, all angles sweet just won’t calibrate through the app? Thinking of going back to Harvey Norman and just getting it accessed for a replacement unit! Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Is the firmware up to date? Perhaps thats something that others encountered and they fixed... Also try just reseting all setting in the app in case one setting is messing with everything...

Yeah, all up to date! Been chasing threads about gimbal cals but they all seem to end up in gimbal motor overheat/overload. Hot tip on the app reset, thanks...

generally this hanging during a calibration is due to the ribbon cable on the gimbal being damaged.
did you manage to get it sorted?
