Hi,
When flying direct into the wind (approx 15mph windspeed), the camera/gimbal on my M2 sometimes tilts down quickly (jerks down), about 10-15 degrees, almost like it's struggling against the force of the wind. I have to use the gimbal tilt to bring it back up again. Is this normal? Does anybody else have this issue?

cheers

Hi there, our apologies for the inconvenience. May I know if you are on S-mode? We recommend that users fly the drone forward when the gimbal is facing downwards by 90 degrees as the gimbal's lower mechanical limiting angle is small, if you fly the drone backward when the gimbal is facing downwards by 90 degrees, the gimbal may hit the limiting part and the video will shake. To avoid that, the gimbal will automatically adjust its altitude and lift up. It also occurs when the drone flies forwards and brakes. If issue persists, try calibrating the gimbal on the app by clicking the 3 dots on the top right and then refer on the attachment below. Please try to refresh the firmware by using DJI Assistant 2 for Mavic. You can download the software here: https://www.dji.com/mavic-2/info#downloads and follow the video tutorial below. Thanks for your support.

Hi all, I have similar problem with gimbal, maybe connected. I've flown mavic 2 pro in minimal wind (none to few kmph), yet still my gimbal did this: https://www(dot)youtube(dot)com/watch?v=GpZ-DYDDWfs . My m2p is 3 days old.

I have the same issue with mine, it’s almost like its overcompensating trying to keep the camera level versus the angle of the drone flying. I notice it Most in sports mode. It’s definitely something that needs to be looked into as it can really mess up an action shot

Also DJI this is not an issue with flying with the camera down 90 degrees. It happens when the camera is level and you fly forward in sports mode in moderate winds the camera shifts down on its own and screws up your video shots .  It either needs to be eliminated or the sensitivity adjusted so it just doesn’t jerk down on its own.

When I put the camera at 30 degrees at the top and thrust the throttle forward the cemra tilt directly down and the same when I step back and I brake, the camera decends alone. I deactivate the limit dial at 30 degrees and I do not have this problem but I can not mount the camera all the way up to 30 degrees.I did everything, calibrate imu, reset etc but nothing done I am forced to fly by turning off the angle at 30 degrees.

I've had the same experience with my M2P. Flying sideways in 8 m/s winds the gimbal went crazy. Pointing in all possible directions, seems like the gimbal just wasn't capable to handle it...

What did you do to correct? I see on the internet that many people have this problem.Moi I efffectué 4 flights in all with the MP2 and it did not do it at the beginning, it's happen spontaneously.
Surely the firmware!
Thank you

J'ai posté une vidéo décrivant le même problème il y a quelques semaines, la mienne le fait aussi. il semble que c’était / était une «caractéristique» commune à Mavic pro en général. Il semble que les moteurs à cardan ne supportent pas facilement les vents violents lors d’une inclinaison prononcée, en particulier en mode Sport (ce qui est logique).

Ok, mais j'essaie sans vent et c'est le même problème, je ne peuxpas utiliser l'option 30 degrés !!
trouvez-vous une solution?
Je vous remercie

Yeah, it definitely seems to be a lack of strength in the gimbal. Quite frustrating tbh.

Morda7583 - you'll need to translate what you're writing mate!

De rien  

je crois que Vous devez contacter le service de DJI, peut-être votre gimbal et défectueux... ites attention, ils ne parlent pas le français!

Thank you, they answered me and asked to send the drone for repair the drone has not even two weeks and 4 flights. Do you believe that I can send it without problem? thank you

Has anyone come to resolution with this? I have the same problem of when flying forward the camera view quickly jerks down 10 or 15 degrees. This has happened since I first purchased the Mavic 2 Pro and has continued thru the firmware updates. I'm currently running v01.00.03.00. I've tried recalibrated the gimbal and everything else as well. For me, this is not when the gimbal is facing down. The camera is facing forward. Thanks.

I have flown in heavy winds along the southern coast of the UK but have not (yet) experienced this problem.

Perhaps fit a lenshood. Whilst not preventing wind from the front it will substantially cut down on wind force from other angles.

I did a quick photo review previously.

I hope you guys will be able to sort the issue.

Thats actually a brilliant idea? normally the MP1 had the cover that could go over the gimbal but I didnt think of the lenshood as a solution.

I don't feel like this is a result of wind. When the gimbal jerks, it's a very mechanical jerk. I'll have to test further if it could be a result of wind over-powering the gimbal, but that doesn't seem likely in my situation.

Gimbal behaviors in the standard! Also I managed the problem and did a lot of research on the problem, but what the problem is NOT! Simply the drone when acquiring too beaten trims automatically corrects the cam to not let it come across the end of the gimbal!

I understand that English is not your native language (neither ii is mine) but you friend, make absolutely no sense... are you using Google translator?

I simply said that these anomalous behavior of the gimbal are due to the sudden attitude of the aircraft! They are normal bro !!!

I think there's little doubt that is a faulty gimbal.

Raise a ticket with DJI if you haven't done so already.

Try to Start up de drone, holding the drone upside down or sideways and after that do camera callibration. That worked before with the phantom 4

DJI doesn't want to help since I'm in Russia and the drone bought in China! Tech support say go to China and fix up there!

Попробуйте запустить дрон, держа дрон вверх дном или боком и после этого сделать каллибрацию камеры. Что раньше работало с phantom 4

Мы должны попробовать!!! Если это поможет, это будет чудо!!! это все еще не работает!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
