Haha you have to be kidding me! This feature is one of the most important settings you can do for your gimbal on any drone! This has to be fixed in a software update? Or else the drone is useless for filming

I totally agree. I saw the post that the beta versions of the software had the gimbal adjustments and other things in there but it was crowded.
One  of the Youtubers who  had  a advanced review copy, just after they announced it, said it was in there, when I asked about it,  but they must have taken it out of the production software.

This makes me belive there will be a update with this option in the future? Just see how much better the software in the mini has been the last couple of updates

HI
Unfortunately I do not have a Mavic mini.
If could i would roll back the firmware and see if the controls where there.
I wish I hadn't updated the firmware when I first started the app.

Anybody that reads this please if you have a chance when initially starting up the drone, don't update it. See if the advanced controls are there.

They  ( advanced gimbal controls) are present when the Youtube reviewers were given  the initial samples to test  and announce on the day of  launch ( that's why no one said anything about them being missing).

I just got mine, it updated without me being able to do anything about it. With that said, the function is not there.... but the smoothnes of the gimbal is alot like my mini when i have set it to 10 on top and 20 under. Dont know what the name is for each setting.

The gimbal on the Air 2 is way more smooth straight out of the box :-)

Hello
I’m glad you  finally  have your drone. And you are happy with it. I guess you have a softer touch than I.
I need the control and adjustments since I am so used to the features.
Good luck and Happy flying.

But yes, i would like the feature back... but it tought it would be way worse! Like the Mini was out of the box.... no chance to fly that thing smooth right out of the box. I'm really curious why they took it away in the first place? hmmm....

Hi no gimbal speed adjustments. They fooled us talking about easier cinematic movements, etc. No way to fine tune the sticks on the controller.. another gotcha..
DJI support, please address these issues.

Agree completely.

In fact, just ditch DJI Fly (which I assume is designed for children and idiots) and implement DJI Go instead, just like all other ‘proper’ DJI aircraft.

Of course DJI won’t do this, because if they don’t hobble this great little aircraft, why would anyone buy the full sized Mavic

Amazing aircraft, hideous software.

They may use the DJI Fly app for all future  consumer drones. People complained that Go4 was complicated or bloated but maybe they were teenagers or new to flying?

I'm new to Drones in general so have no comparisons with the Mini but I've found the gimbal motion is quite well dampened when using the touch & drag control on the app screen, but more coarse when using the thumbwheel. It would be nice to fine tune the sensitivity though!

HI,
Yes I used the touch and drag function, but am so used to using the wheel. I guess sometimes its better to be a new flyer.


But you may want to check this video out concerning the gimbal. Pay attention at 3:56

That would be great if they do add additional gimbal adjustments.  I really don't understand why more of these obvious adjustments were left out of the DJI Fly app when the Air 2 was released.  They had plenty of time to work on the app after the MM was released and after hearing months of feedback from those users.  I guess the coming months will tell us all if DJI developers are truly listening to the consumers.

Hi, The gimbal adjustments were included in the MM ( Mavic mini). For some reason, they were not included in the app for the Mavic Air 2. I cannot understand why.

I've found that the gimbal dial isn't too bad without having the smoothness, speed setting. By barely moving the gimbal dial, you can get a fairly smooth and slow movement and turn it more, you'll get faster speeds. Firmware update would be nice however

Hello I agree the firmware update would be better for me ( and maybe a lot of other people).
I'm paying attention to where I am flying (and even though I can walk and chew gum at the same time), it is a challenge to have to focus on controlling the gimbal at a speed that I want.

I agree... the gimbal speed is not that bad, but it need a steady hand. So it can be done, but i would much rater have a option to adjust it like the mini... but i guess this will come in the next update :-)

I've got the mini as well and don't think I realized that it had this setting. I generally use the P4P for my best aerial shots but I'm just a novice anyway and seldom do post production work. It's just fun stuff for me. It keeps me generally out of trouble and out of bars. I always say: "Honey, I'm going out to fly the drones". That's a far cry from what I use to say to my first wife. Ha

You can screen adjust the Gimbal up and down, left and right until the firmware sorts it. Not sure if its more or less sensitive as Ive just found out its possible tbh.

Hi
I've tried that. and it does work, I just have to remember to do it, and slowly.
Thanks for the tip!

You're welcome :-) I shared cautiously because I hadn't seen it advertised or reviews anywhere and wasn't sure if I was the only one who didn't know about it.

No you were not alone. Someone gave the tip to me on a different  thread/complaint about the gimbal adjustment.
It just takes some getting used to...
