Background - I received the Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian last week. It had the Air Encoder Error (0x4000000) warning. At the time DJI was saying to send it back, so I did. The replacement came today and it is complaining about gimbal overload. Both gimbal locks are removed, did a gimbal auto calibration and it still says gimbal overload (also has the Air Encoder Error (0x4000000) warning which DJI now says doesn't hurt anything and will be fixed next FW release). Anything I can try? Send it back again?

You might need to go to this thread and request the beta update. There are no issues with this update as many of us have been using it for some time now. This beta seems to fix most issues with the gimbal.

Please try to restart the drone for times and see will the gimbal overload issue persists. If it persists, please check if the gimbal works alright, and please also provide me with the screenshots of the error message and About on General settings at the same time. Thank you.

Four restarts on the drone didn't help. Here's the errors, general about plus a screen shot show how the camera is tilted.

Well, that didn't work. I've never posted photos before.

I gave up and returned it to where I bought it. Thanks to all who made suggestions, it appears the drone gods do not want me to have an Obsidian, I ordered a white one.

Sorry for the difficulties you've been experiencing. If you decided to order another one, I respect your choice. Hope you can get all things settled shortly and receive your drone soon.
