    I have an annoying Gimbal twitch which has developed after a week of flying the Phanton. Has anyone experienced a similar problem and know how to fix it. I have emailed DJI and await a reply.
    Here is a quick video which shows the problem

    Update
    Spoke to the suppliers Heliguy in the UK today about this. They explained DJI send out product with bugs in it and fix those bugs via the firmware updates as they are reported and resolved. Heliguy to their credit were happy to accept the return but before I returned the Phantom decided to update the firmware.
    The gimbal was a bit unstable after first powering up and I was worried I had done it wrong but after a few cycles it settled down and second flight tonight was faultless.
    Im now a very happy man

    I have all the latest firmware and my gimbal still twitched and had the jello effect. Put a new gimbal and it's all good now. Hardware issue for me.
