I have been extremely disapointed with the Osmo+.  Both timelapse functions are basically useless due to gimbal drift issues.  Here are two examples of what I'm dealing with.  I've tried gimbal calibration immediately prior to both of these shots.  Are they working on a fix for this?  If not I will be returning my Osmo+ as it is completely worthless to me.

Here is an example of the terrible functionality of the gimbal during programmable timelapse.

Dumb question - likely someone has either tested this or posted it - but, has anyone tried changing the settings on the gimbal...as in setting the smooth track adjustments (speed, deadband and accel) to zero, prior to recording the timelapse?

Yes it is important to adjust your 'profiles' and change your 'smooth track adjustments'

Hi,

It's funny, I've also posted about Drift bug at the same time! http://forum.dji.com/thread-77398-1-1.html with a big difference between Regular and Motion TimeLapse : you will see there several video tests.

Do you have made several tests changing the settings on the gimbal? Any good or bad conclusion in waiting DJI firmware fix? What are your bests values?
