Does an out-of-kilter IMU or Gyro affect the gimbal.

I posted this in "Help", in an old thread which has I think has gone stale, but did give me a clue.

My question:- Can an IMU and/or gyro in need of a whack/calibration cause the gimbal to behave erratically in any way?

I cant answer this w/ my p3 experience, but i fixed a "gimble shake" issue on a p2 gimble once w/ only a advanced calibration!

i would think so since the gimbal needs to be told which direction it is facing. If it doesn't know it's own orientation it couldn't keep the camera level with the horizon etc.

One would then expect erratic behaviour all round, not just the gimbal?

I was told by DJI to calibrate the IMU, gimbal and compass to help eliminate the out of focus camera. I'm guessing calibration is key to most problems.
It didn't fix the out of focus camera by the way.
