    I've just gone out for the first few flights today and noticed the gimbal doesn't really work at all for left or right angle changes, it works for forward and backwards fine though.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to send it all the way back to DJI and be without it for weeks if it's something I can do.

    Thanks
    John

    Have you checked that you're not in FPV mode?

    In the app check Settings - FPV mode should be off. If it isn't you'll get those symptoms.

    Connor, you're spot on - I'd enabled FPV thinking it gave me the FPV view on my phone.

    That's perfect now. Time to charge those batteries and get some more shots.
