I was flying the Phantom 4 yesterday. As it was traveling along suddenly it appeared as if the Phantom was flying almost sideways or the camera/gimble was jerked sideways. Below is a video. Any ideas on the cause?  The rest of the flight completed without incident. I was not sure if this was a wind gust or battery issue or a birdstrike? There were NO marks on the Phantom or camera indicating something had grabbed it.  
Video link is below.  The issue occurs at 18 seconds into the 30 second video.



The issue occurred near 'I'

I believe this is what's happening. On windy days and sport mode, especially flying sideways, this will happen. You'll get a messsage about Gimbal End Point reached. See video below:

Thank you very much.  This provides justification as to what likely happened.  I was flying a litchi mission and didn't see an error message about the anything.   I dumped out the flight log and noticed a bunch of non zero numbers in the gimbalRollRaw column when the gimble starting its jumping.  Then numbers were non zero for 8 seconds.  That's the amount of time during the glitch.  Then they went back to zero.  I didn't see any error text in the log but the messages may be tied to one of these columns values.

Thanks again for taking the time to answer my concern.

Does the litchi app's log provide that kind of information?
