    make sure everything is updated. also condensation in the gimbal might cause it.

    Hey there, I've noticed that my new V3 does the same thing. I also have had no crashes or hard landings. I have tested it numerous times on the bench and have noticed that the gimbal will move both right and left depending on your yaw movement on the left stick. After watching your video I believe that is what you are seeing. The first one when you are sitting on your case is probably caused by the CSC execution. Thus the movement to the right. Also just after liftoff it moves to the right again while you are yawing to the right. I am not concerned with the movement as I imagine it has something to do with the gimbal attempting to compensate for the yawing similar to the way it compensates for roll. I hope this makes sense!
