    I recently took my P3A out for 35-40 minutes of flying. Previously, when going to the right or left, the gimbal let the camera stay horizontal. On this trip out, when I went left or right, the camera tilted or dipped with the drone providing unacceptable results. Other than the upgrades, I've done nothing to the bird......any thoughts ? I've spent hours on YouTube, the DJI website and really cannot find any detailed info about the gimbal settings.....HELP !

    Thanks

    This exact same behavior happened to my P3A tonight too. On a litchi mission over a lake it turned clockwise to head to the next waypoint and the camera dipped and shook. See the video at 4:05 and at 4:40.

    Really weird. I had this exact problem a few weeks ago. Only happened on one flight and it's not happened since.

    Confirm that your camera's gimbal is set to FOLLOW mode and not FPV.
