Anyone seen this before?  I sort of "lightly" crashed the mavic into the side of building.  No broken props or anything and it didn't even lose an altitude, but I started seeing a "abormal gimbal vibration" warning in the app afterward.  The gimbal moves fine with the controller.  No issues there.  I did notice putting the gimbal bracket on that holds the gimbal in place (not the gimbal dome cover) felt a bit weird after like it didn't really fit anymore.  The camera sort of juts out out but I have no issues moving the gimbal.  Did a gimbal calibration as soon as I got the warning and that went fine as well.

Sorry for your crash, Loganx1121.
Did you try to test the gimbal while flying? Is there any vibration issue while flying?

I only get the vibration error when I'm flying

Unfortunately this is not my issue.  I'm going to try doing the calibration with the dji assistant desktop app and see if that resolves anything.

Update:  Flew on my lunch break.  No more vibration errors but now I'm seeing that infamous horizon tilt issue.  Don't know what to do about that.  Seems to be a mixed opinion on whether that's the nature of the beast or if it shouldn't happen.

Update again:  So I got home, connected to the DJI assistant 2 app and did a camera calibration.  Idk if that calibrates the gimbal or not actually but I figurd it couldn't hurt.  (Does it cal the gimbal or just the 2 front avoidance cameras?)  Then I calibrated the IMU even though it said those sensors were fine.  Took it outside in the driveway, put it sport mode, did a bunch of left to rights and yaw rotations and really wasn't seeing the horizon tilt anymore.

BUT, and this is a new one for me, I had it landed and the motors going while I was messing with the app, and got a gimbal motor overload error.  It was just sitting in the driveway, motors on, not moving while I was playing with some of the settings (not gimbal settings either) and up popped the gimbal overload error.  I have no clue.  Any ideas?
No the gimbal bracket was not on, and there was very little wind.
