    Hi. My gimbal suddenly decided to aim at the front left leg mid flight, and won't re-center.
    Yes I have:
    Removed foam guard
    Recalibrated IMU on level surface
    Recalibrated gimbal on level surface

    Gibal moves around a bit on recalibration, but goes back to pointing left. Any thoughts?

    What happens when the drone is on and you turn it side to side?

    The camera jumps around a bunch, but then goes back to that left-facing position. :/

    Try a IMU calibration if it needs it or not. Then re calibrate the compass. Power the bird. What is the results?

    Another option is to downgrade your firmware and re upload the new firmware once again as a process of elimination. Sorry for the pun.:p
