What were the "sweet spot" values if you don't mind me asking. I am too experiencing some sort of toilet bowl effect. I'm going to play with the unit until I can get it to cease.
As far as any sweet spot is concerned, I was just meticulous about balancing the entire drone, front to back and having the GPS unit perfectly in line, forward facing.
To tell you the truth though, I've given up on using any rational thought with the Matrice 600. It's a hunk of junk IMO for cinematic endeavors (note* I have the Matrice 600 first order, not the "Pro", mine was likely a Beta test).. For mine I have added extra dampeners and use stabilization lenses. This helps, but as far getting rid of the Toilet Bowl effect, numbers be damned (maybe DJI can clarify on this weeks numbers), my main thoughts for you would be:
1. Balance your drone as best you can. If you have a Ronin on it, do a complete calibration -> balance test etc. (Remember to do your balance test after you add any additional cables or focus motors). Make sure you get an "excellent" .
2. Update Firmware. The Matrice has barely any support from DJI (except DJI-Jamie). This step seems obvious, but DJI didn't even have correct firmware for the original Matrice600 until its December firmware release. So make sure you are good to go. This could also help with the "swirling/toilet bowl effect".
3. Keep experimenting. I hate to harp on this but depending on the Matrice600 you have, especially on early versions like mine, keep experimenting. At first I was a sleuth trying to get the correct numerology inputed into my Matrice/Ronin combo. I'm pretty sure we were just Beta testers and there was really no uniformly accepted input. I still think this, but at least if you are using a Ronin, there is a lot more info on this and I can help you as it pertains to Ronin input numbers (let me know).
4. Most importantly, make sure the arrow on your A3 unit is perfectly straight forward and parallel to the Red Arrow that marks forward on your top cover.
Good luck, and sorry I don't have an exact answer for you.
