Hi!
Thanks for any ideas.
the P4p gimble takes a long time to return to level after turning and moving side to side. I can reproduce the issuse on the ground by picking it up and move it left/right, side to side. After setting it back down on level ground (table) you can see that the gimble is moving back to level but very very slowly.

any ideas?

Im planning on updating FW to latest today but thot Id put this out there. I rolled back from .300 to trouble shoot other issues (which worked)

thx

Ok so did you fix the problem ?
If so great if not can you upload a short video of it happening.
Have you done the firmware upgrade ?Has the drone crashed or hard landed ?

I just did the upgrade to latest. tested at kitchen table. Gimble seems to stay level, even on violent yaw/roll by hand. Ill be testing flight in a bit. ill post here.
never crashed/hard land, always handle with kit gloves :-)

After factory reset, flight check on gimbal gives same thing. On forw/back with yaw flight, gimbal tilts horizonally and when yaw is stopped, gimbal is still tilted then after many seconds, it slowly (real slow) returns to level. Iv noticed some other symptoms too. Using left C button for gimbal 0deg and 90 deg, when returning to 0 from 90 it doesnt return exactly where it should, sometimes stops short and sometimes overshoots.

ive tried to upld a vid but having troble with that too....

this is a head banger!!!
