    I am having problems with the gimbal on my p3 pro. Since 3 updates ago every time I start up the aircraft, the camera goes through its startup routine, when finished the camera is at full tilt to the right. A gimbal calibration usually sorts it out. However, sometimes when I start up the aircraft and the gimbal has done its normal setup, after 1 or 2 seconds, the camera starts moving from side to side and up and down (full travel). The only way I can stop this is by turning of the aircraft. This first started during ont the last update but the one before. Any ideas.
    I have calibrated IMU and gimbal numerous times.

    Did you check the set screws on the gimbal arm and motors? Several threads on the forum regarding tightening those screws
