My gimbal is suddenly not working correctly... on power up it keeps readjusting and going to the bottom left. I didn't impact it and after inspection I found no debris that would cause interference. I'm assuming this is a software problem. I would really appreciate any ideas on possible ways solve this. Is there a way to do a factory reset on gimbal settings or.... I might be looking in the wrong direction here?


Seriously any help appreciated I'm supposed to be flying it tomorrow at a fundraiser!

Oh its a P2V+ early version with DJI factory gimbal/camera assembly.

Here is a 7 second video of what happens when I power on the phantom....

It basically continues this behavior until the phantom is powered down.

There was a firmware update to fix this, do you have all the latest updates installed ?
If you do an advanced IMU calibration take the lens cap off.

Thanks so much for the feedback I'll try these fixes as soon as I can. I know my updates are the latest but I might have done my last IMU calib with the cap on.  Also the video kg posted shows a very similar problem to my own so that might do it. I'll post updates.


Thanks so much guys for your suggestions!!!

No dice. Ruined the ribbon cable in the process of dickering. Now I'm weighing buying a new one against trying a GoPro setup
