I have 2 Pros and both did this on the same day. I was shooting video, making a slow turn then suddenly the camera/gimbal suddenly made a quick 10-15 degree horizontal dip (it tipped left side down) then immediately back to normal. Anyone know why this might be happening and what can be done to keep it from happening again? Odd that it is happening on both units.

I get this too in strong cross-wind - most often when flying side-on into the wind. Assuming it's the same issue, I don't think there's a fix other than to reduce the pressure on the gimbal by slowing down or changing direction.

I occasionally get a glitch in my video too. Don’t know why but the camera will twitch then go back to being rock steady.

Agree that wind is most likely cause. Might be gusts at that height. Should show on your wind gauge (steep angle of attack) might check the logs for those flights to confirm. Think you’re ok, sorry bout the video.
