Hello Forums, I am an experienced pilot with multiple DJI drones and have never had any problems over the past 2 years of flying Mavics and Phantoms. However, this past week I was prompted to upgrade firmware on my Mavic 2 Pro from 1.00.0510 to 1.00.0670 and ever since the gimbal has not been working properly. Usually what happens is, the drone will takeoff just fine and fly 1 flight normally. However, after landing and taking off for a 2nd time, during this 2nd flight the gimbal stops holding at the appropriate pitch, and starts moving erratically. Even after returning home, the gimbal was shaking violently from side to side, even after calibration. I tried downgrading this drone back to version 1.00.0510, and now the problem won't go away, even after upgrading to 1.00.0670 again. My drone is essentially bricked, has anyone else encountered something similar, or know how to help with this?

Posts like this one, keeps me from updating to the new firmware. Is the extended range worth the risk of something like this happening?

Ive not noticed any range improvement since doing the update,  so don't feel left out if you havent upgraded.

I would definitely recommend avoiding this update, not worth at all.
