    Hi, This is my first post and I'm greener than the grass.
    Lately I'm having issues with my gimbal rolling over for no reason, like it's going to sleep or hibernation. When flying or having just taken off it just flops over.
    After a wee while it tries to right itself, sometimes it succeeds but never manages to get to a level horizon it struggles or keeps to a strange angle. Other times it seems to struggle and then flops over again.
    If I'm steady enough when its hoovering in front of me I finger the gimbal level until it wakes up then it stays horizontal. This doesn't always work and when I fly away it will sometimes roll over again.
    Also when I start up on the ground I hold a finger under the gimbal to keep it near level as it starts up so it stays level. It has always started up and never kept level.
    I can tilt it just fine at any time.
    Prior to all this happening after I got it level when it started, it stayed that way and I went flying and filming very happily.
    Now the problem seems to be getting worse and frustrating.
