Hi guys, i did a short flight (less than 5 mins) around a farm. Halfway through the flight its seems like i lost control of the mavic and the gimbal was wonky. However, i managed to lower and quicky return to home. Could any advise what might be wrong?

In order to get an accurate assessment of the flight and the drone, posting the flight logs, will be much more useful than the video. Glad you could get it home safely. DJI Flight Log Viewer - Phantom Help

It looks like you flew sideways into something. Or a bird attacked you. Something was in the frame in the upper right corner. Could even see the right front prop for a second or two.

Without some of the more advanced analyst that others have the tools to perform, the log does show this, "Approaching a no-fly zone. RTH may be affected. Fly with caution.", several times. So if that position corresponded to the strange behavior, it may be the answer. If there was a virtual fence (GEOfence), it could have moved the drone in an unusual flight as it "slid" along the fence.
