Hey Guys -

Can you take a look at this quick clip and tell me if this is normal/expected?  When I fly my air near objects, it's almost like I see a back and forth wobble in the image.  Doesn't seem expected to me.  Anyone else experiencing this?

Whatever you are concerned with, it did not jump out at me.  Any hints (time stamp) on where the problem is?

Mostly when I fly over the tower. To me it looks like there is a slight side to side horizontal wobble in the objects. Maybe try watching full screen in YouTube?  Perhaps I’m just seeing things or expecting too much, but I haven’t noticed this in other videos.

Did you have apas on it looks like it was moving slightly.

Seems normal footage to me...a slight left/right movement is expected when flying a drone, gps positioning has a small inherent drift and wind can also affect the position..after all it is a drone not a dolly.

That's normal; all DJI drones will drift in the air whenever it's not in the VPS range. As ggeorgis have said, GPS positioning has a small (1 metre / 3 ft) drift. However, it's not noticeable at all when you capture things that are far away

Always expect a slight variance when in GPS mode

Thanks guys. I appreciate the reassurance.  I’m fairly certain APAS wasn’t enabled, but it sounds like this is pretty much expected.

I have noticed while flying mine  over the last few days that APAS will make it jump sideways (literally!) if even a bee buzzes by too close.  I know you said your APAS was off, but something to be aware of in the future.

Hey Berg, it looks like the VPS detects the obstacle and brake for a short time. No worries.
