    I've noticed on my videos that when I do a straight run with my copter, and then come to a stop, there is a noticeable (and aggravating) movement in the camera gimbal .. Why is that? Sure wrecks an even video shot, as you end the run with a bounce in the picture.. A way to see how this works is to turn the copter on, then hold it level.. Now tilt the copter, you can hear the motor in the gimbal turning the camera.. Why is that? Even if you use the app to lift the camera up as high as it will go.. If you tilt the copter by hand, you hear the motor turning the gimbal.. Shouldn't it stay in the position as set on the app.. ??

    Hello. Which aircraft, which camera, which gimbal?! Need a bit more from you there - as we're in "General" it could be anything. :D
