Last week on a video shoot using my 3rd battery, my P4 gimbal tilted when rolling the aircraft left and right.  It would stay on that angle.  Also, it made a high shrill noise.  I was using the Neewer ND-16 filter made for the P4.  I then rest the aircraft for 20 minutes and it returned to normal and flew one more flight.   I use the stock DJI P4 gimbal guard and the stock props are balanced. Hence, I believe it may have overheated.  I recal'd the gimbal and IMU after the flight.  I am watching for a tendency here but this is the second camera for this unit and it was installed by DJI in April.   I have read other posts that say you should rest the P4 after 30-40 minutes of shooting.  I will watch this over time.  Attached is the link to a the video link edited with FCPX and Compressor.  Safe Flying.

The setting is found in the Gimbal options in the DJI Go app...

Hi.  I have a Phantom 3 Pro and a Phantom 4.  FPV mode does not seem to work?  Any ideas?  I have button 2 set to change this.  Also I have tried via the gimbal settings.

Like jwt873 said - it looks like you accidentally hit the C2 button (default operation) and triggered FPV instead of follow mode.

Hello ChiefPilot, your gimbal was probably in FPV mode at that time.
