Did it happen during a head wind or crosswind? The angle of attack of the drone will have an effect on the way and the delay that the gimbal is able to maintain the horizon. The stiffer the head wind, the lower the nose of the drone will need to be to give itseld more thrust into the wind.Sorry newbie question. I was flying twice today in winds and the gimboal seemed to lock at a strange angle. I was flying fast in wind - not in sports mode. Stopping and restarting corrected it. Any ideas??
Yes when I brought it down to eye level to inspect what was going on it seemed to be fine, but when I took it up again around 50 metres it would lock again, I really do hope it sorts itself out, like I said my first mavic air had 250 flights and I flew it in the wind and sports mode and the gimble never locked or froze, this is like my 5th flight from a pre used drone so I'm just curious and hoping it's not a hardware faultNot at my laptop. It travels freely now so think this was software or a hard physical stop because of extreme leaning into wind. It corrected itself when I halted drone in mid air. Will post video in next 24 hours promise
Not as bad as it was in your case but this has happened to me too. It wasn't that windy and I was not going fast or in sports mode. There was this sudden jolt of the gimbal as the drone stopped moving, but it corrected itself pretty much quickly. I am still puzzled as to what caused it. You can see a clip of it hereYoutube
Strong wind gusting from right about 110 degrees from direction of travel. Possibly 25mph wind or more in gusts?
Problem demonstrated on video. In this case it corrected itself.
On previous case (video was not switched on so not recorded) it went to an angle. Not sure if it was same angle or reverse one. I slowed to a stop and as I did so it corrected itself.
