    Does the Gimbal calibration need to be done straight after the IMU calibration with out moving the craft. I forgot to calibrate the gimbal the other night after my firmware update and another cold IMU.

    Yea i only asked because today i started filming before i armed the motors, once i started them the camera goes to the right for a split second and then goes back centre again after watching it back when i got home. Checked some of my other flights and on some the camera has done the same and some it does not appear to have. I guess its the motors firing up so quick causes the gimbal to jerk a little and then centrers it self maybe.

    Its not that is after thinking about it, its the stick movement made while arming the motors that move the camera to the right.
