Nope, none of the above.

But you're right...it is very confusing as to why/how this happened. Hop ...

you need to rename that video to "Phantom 4 encounters 60 MPH wind gust in FPV strafing and takes it like a boss!"

Hello TK-421, could you please sync your flight record and leave your dji account here? Also, could you estimate the wind speed at that time?

Hello TK-421,

Did you ever try to move your AC once manually (Props off, AC on)...When you give enough pitch and roll you will reach the mechanical endpoint of your gimbal and when you continue to keep it in this position the gimbal will go limb.
I think it's an internal protection for the gimbal motors (overheating) to protect them...

Had this happen a few times since I've had the drone. Normal occurs in windy situations. It is normal...for now.
