Hello! Recently an issue with my mini 2 has popped out of nowhere. When the drone flies sideways the horizon is tilted to the right and when its flying forward or backwards the horizon goes up by about 3 deegres. The weird thing is that when the drone is not moving after something like 4 seconds the horizon is stable again. Is this a hardware or firmware issue? Please help i really enjoy flying the mini 2 but now the videos are just bad. (I calibrated the compass, gimbal and IMU multiple times with no effect)

Thanks in advance!

I actually had the same thing happen last Dec. It seems to have stopped just as fast as it started. There have been a few firmware updates in between, but I'm not sure what fixed it.

I know you said you did all the usual IMU cal, Gimbal cal etc etc. but grasping at straws, how about uninstalling the Fly app and re-installing it again. Probably won't work but you never know!

Check your app settings and see if you have inadvertantly enabled FPV mode under the control section.

Nope, follow mode selected.

Well the drone had a 1m fall on a hard surface.

Next thing, Dji will possibly ask to see a video of the problem, then advise you to get in touch with DJi support  for investigation  and repair/ replacement. Good luck.

Probably suggest doing calibration of everything, ie, gimbal, IMU, etc then doing a flight test and report back.

Mine does this too. Went for my first real flights yesterday, winds were light but we noticed that when shooting sideways when flying upwind the video was tilted. Then it went back to level when not in motion. I am travelling so can’t post a sample video but I’ll try to make a short one to demonstrate and post it when I get home.

Update: I sent the drone to DJI and they said there`s nothing wrong. Suprisingly after the drone came back to me the gimbal started working fine. Looks like the gimbal fixed itself, it was probably because the drone looked like it was thrown around (box broken, drone body scuffed in two places).
