    Towards the end of my second flight tonight, my zenmuse H3-3d started jerking up and down. Before this, there was a brief moment of severe vibration during the flight. Previous flight was fine and the first 10 minutes or so of the second flight was fine. It continued until I landed and turned it off. Before the flights, during initialization, the gimbal was making more noise than usual but then settled itself down and operated as usual.

    Any idea what's happening here?

    I did do the downgrade from 3.10 to 3.08 before this flight. But the gimbal has performed flawlessly on 3.08 in the past few weeks.

    Did you upgrade your controller to a tilt wheel/dial?
    If so, recalibrate in RC1.2 and then in the phantom assist. Remember to move the tilt dial in both calibrations.

    Also, what is the gimbal firmware? is it the latest?

    It's only a month old - came with the new controller with the tilt wheel. It's been calibrated within the last 2 weeks. Latest firmware on the gimbal.

    Do the calibration in both the RC1.2 and Phantom assist. Move the tilt dial in both calibrations.
