    Hi all, Just received my replacement P2V+ but surprise, surprise... There's a problem with it straight out of the box, again.
    Done all the usual calibrations etc but.... When I push the L/H joystick left, the camera turns left. When I push the L/H joystick right, the camera turns right!? WTF is going on with it now? How do I rectify this? This is not good and my patience with DJI is wearing very thin...

    Any help would be appreciated...

    That's normal behaviour.

    My last one didn't do that, it pointed straight ahead. Just called my nephew & he says his doesn't move either... Hmmm weird :roll:

    That is strange. I don't have a P2V+ but I have seen videos of the camera slightly moving left/right when yaw is applied (when on a table). I understood this was to help improve pans when yawing.

    Hopefully someone else can chime in that has a P2V+ to confirm

    Well that's some good news! Appreciate the help guys :D
    My first one must have been faulty because it stayed right in the middle. Now, if I could only get it off the ground...

    I think that gimbal yaw response was added with one of the recent firmware upgrades.

    I think you can hot FPV mode and it stays still to.

    But normally it moves, mine does.
