I noticed a problem with my drone. My Mavic turns around himself. The latest software was updated, I calibrated all sensors and still the same. this happens both at home and outside. Does anyone know the reason?

1. Check your controller in the calibration screen(while the drone is off), see if the rudder stick is giving commands on its own.
2. Your in a pretty tight space there, try another flight in an open space see if it does the same, I assume your front and back sensors are on and trying to avoid an obstacle.
3. Check that you have the latest firmware on your drone and controller.
4. Any warnings appear in the app while this is happening ?

Thanks for the answer. As I said, I have the latest soft in the drone and controller. I have already refreshed the soft by dji assistant, made calibrations of cameras, sensors. I also calibrated the rods, IMU and compass.
During the flight, I have activated proximity sensors and bypassing.

This does not occur always but quite often. This is especially problematic when I take pictures and the drone turns itself.

I just checked the controller itself. It looks like it shows the stick movement to the right. I did re-calibration. Tomorrow I'll check if the problem stops.

It's good that you passed calibration, chances are you might have resolved the issue, however if it keeps doing it then you can send it back to DJI for warranty(assuming its still in warranty).

Oh Wow!! That's the automatic 360 deg surveillance mode... You can use it to take auto panoramic shots   DJI's new feature in disguise

I am suffering as well.  The last thing I did was re-calibrate everything including the IMU.  I flew one battery and all was OK.  One thing I did do was change the sensitivity of the Yaw settings, that might have disguised the problem.

All was well until the last firmware.

I will check how the weather will improve. It's raining for now ... Yes, I have a guarantee. Thanks for advice.

Same as above then.

Update firmware for drone and RC, Update DJI GO 4 App.
Check controller calibration in app(you might see the sticks in the app moving on there own).
Calibrate your compass.
Calibrate your IMU.
Make sure no errors are appear in your app while the drift is happening(Compass error, vision sensors etc)
Make sure your drone isn't obstructed, it may seem like your drifting in some situations but it might be because your vision sensors detect an obstacle.
Make sure you have a good GPS signal if your drone is higher than the vision sensor limit.
A lot of the above can be solved by flying in a wide open area.

Although you don’t show it, you should be aware that textured floor covering is important for downward sensors to lock on, so while I’m not saying this is your problem you may need to eliminate this. Same can also be said when flying low over surface such as grass.
