I've seem posts about the uncontrolled shaking at power up, but his is more of a slight vertical shimmy. (See Video). The shaking continues even after it flys. The camera still works, but shaky. I don't feel any resistence when moving it by hand. I don't see any obvious signs of damage. Software says gimbal stuck. Calbrating the gimbal simply sits at 0%. Firmware has been updated.

I was not the last pilot so it may have crashed, but I don't know.

Any thoughts before I look into repair? I can probably replace the gimbal but I 'm not sure it's broken or even the problem. I can dissaenble and reassemble it. It's out of warranty.

Thanks for any advice.

Gently try some compressed air around the gimbal.

Great idea. Tried it but no luck. On that same thought I also slide some tape down the side of the vertical tilt hinges hoping I could pop something loose. No luck there, either.

Thanks for the suggestion.

When mine does this, I just gently  touch the camera while it is doing it. This stops it. If this does not do it, I would open a ticket with DJI support.

I had this happen a couple months ago and did what Mobilehomer is suggesting. Hasn't done it since.

Thanks Mobilehomer and Red Canyon. Excellent suggestion, but alas, still shaking.
