    Why doest it do that?
    All devices have the latest fw vers, and this is a brand new P2 v2 with Zenmuse H3-3D

    I think it's normal, the P2V+ certainly does it - the purpose must be to smooth your pan as much as possible.

    Connect your Phantom to your PC and open the PT2 assistant sofware, then go to Advance tab, choose gimbal. Make sure unchecked the FPV mode. Your gimbal now should always maintain level

    aw come on, be nice to the new guy just trying to help. FPV mode was the first thing I thought of then I remembered it's right stick not left, you wouldn't be the first person to accidentally enable FPV mode and be like wtf??

    anyway yes prior to v3 firmware it didn't happen but now when you move the left stick L/R there's a tiny bit of pan movement on the gimbal. you can see it even without the motors on.

    Yes, This is a ridiculous feature added during one of the past firmware updates. It has absolutely ruined the ability to do a precise pan when shooting video. The Gimbal DOES NOT stay pointed straight ahead during an intentional Yaw. Watching your FPV to line up an ending point on your pan results in the gimbal drifting back and coming off what you thought had been centered in your shot.
