The following (see video) has started occuring on my Mavic. I have not crashed it into anything. Reloading the latest firmware, calibrating the IMU, VPS does not seem to fix it. Happens both outside (GPS) and inside (opti/atti). DJI Go reports 'abnormal gimbal vibration', but as you can see, It's not the gimbal its the entire craft.
At first I thought it was the propellers, but I swapped those out, and the problem is still there.




I have flight logs too and can PM a dropbox link if someone knows how to interpret them...

Any suggestions before I call DJI and RMA it?

Turn off the prop guard (cage) option. I dont have my mavic with me but dig into the menus for prop guards.

Thanks so much! That worked immediately. DJI Chat support only suggested obstacle avoidance system calibration again....

I have to ask - what is the "Prop Guard" option and what does it do?

Maybe DJI will issue prop-guards which change the aerodynamics of Mavic substantially. Then this function might compensate the (radically?) changed airflow through the props ?

Same happened with me and turning off props guard fixed the issue. It may be activated when I turned off beginner mode. Thanks a lot for the solution
