Around the 18s mark there is a noticeable camera jerk, I'm still pretty new to this but so far this is the only time I've noticed something like that. Is that just a random fluke? It was kinda windy... or is it just something that happens occasionally?

That is definitely a gimbal movement that is not caused by the wind, it could be a once off.

If it keeps happening then I'd try a gimbal calibration which is in the control menu of DJI Fly

Hi, thank you for reaching out and we're sorry for the inconvenience caused. Can you please try to perform a gimbal calibration to see if the problem persists? Also, can you please try to fly in a different location with a small amount of wind to see if there would be some changes. Please keep us posted. Thank you!

This may also be the effect if the drone suddenly stops. I had a similar effect when I flew backwards in sportmode and suddenly stopped. So now I always make the braking soft. Or maybe it is a side effect if the gimbal upwards movement is permitted (gimbal settings menu)

Yea, that sounds reasonable, but I'd expect the quickshot to fly in such a way to avoid that.

it's the wind, I've experienced both vertical and horizontal "jerks" of the gimbal in windy conditions, the gimbal is small and not super strong so it's more susceptive to unwanted movement.

It could be for sure, since I fly without the prop guards I haven't experienced again.

Ah ok, you are right, I read later that the incident happened in quick shot mode, I thought you climbed manually and then suddenly braked.
I cannot confirm that the gimbal generally makes uncontrolled movements due to the wind. As I said, I only had the stuttering when I braked suddenly. This sudden change of movement seems to be too fast for the gimbal. Ok, I would say try a quickshot again. If it works, then it may have been a little nasty ;-) gust of wind.

Hi,
Did you take control before the quickshot finished? Were you using the guards when this was taken?
