The camera on a brand new MP will slowly move/pan towards the right very slowly every so-often with no input from the RC.  

Props look good, latest FW, IMU recal'd, compass calibrated, even RC sticks have been cal'd as well.

This can be seen on ther ground while sitting on my desk or on the display monitor on the RC.



Anyone have any ideas I have not tried?     thanks

When you say "The camera on a brand new MP will slowly move/pan towards the right" do you mean the camera only or do you mean the whole craft is turning? I'm assuming it's the entire craft? Is there an issue with the sticks? I recall seeing another poster saying they were having issues with the sticks not centering. Could this (or similar) be the cause of your issue?

What it looks like to me is the camera moves to the right without the craft moving.   I can sit it on my desk and see the same thing, which would eliminate wind moving the craft while in the air.     As far as the RC sticks, they appear to calibrate well with no errors.

That being said, the slightest left pressure on the left stick will stop it.    The movement is not consistent in that it does not happen all the time.

Does it also happen while flying?  

While sitting on your desk, I assume the motors are not engaged.  Are you getting a "Magnetic interference" message when the Mavic boots up?

Mine does this too. Even when it's just switched on, if I pick it up and put it onto the ground where it's going to take off, the camera will continue crawling right for a few seconds before coming to a halt. I think this is what's causing the tilted horizon problem in flight.
