    It looks like my phantom thinks it's in FPV mode, but it's not.

    It does the same thing with firmware 3.0.

    Your video doesn't really demonstrate the problem. If you want to check out if you are in FPV or not, pick up the phantom and rock it back and forth. If the camera stays level with the horizon, its not in FPV. If it follows the rocking motion then it is in FPV.

    When I pick up the phantom and rock it, it works as it should. So you're telling me that what you see in the video is normal behaviour?

    Mine does the same, I thinks it's normal (old and new firmware)

    Mine does this and I still have the old firmware installed.

    It is perfectly normal, just as it is normal for the gimbal to go limp if you tilt the aircraft to extreme angles. The gimbal is preemptively rotating to assist in smoothing yaw. I run firmware 3.0 and it does it too.

    AS DB indicated, when you yaw right or left, the gimbal moves the camera a moment before the actual aircraft starts to rotate with the effect of reducing the jerky motion of the yaw.
