Hello everyone, I've noticed for a while that when flying and filming or taking time-lapse photography my drone tends to spin in circles. My gimbals also does the same thing while not taken off. I'll just be sitting ready for takeoff and my gimbal is slightly moving very slowly to the left. When I'm in the air my entire drone it seems like rotates, or it could be the gimbal itself. I make sure I have sufficient satellites before takeoff and there is no wind. I've calibrated the gimbal on several occasions but have yet to solve this issue.

Heres a link to a video I got just this morning that made me post this thread:

I would do an IMU calibration as well as a RC calibration.

Is your drone actually rotating or just the gimbal.
In the video the sun moves initially but then stops.
That looks a lot more like gimbal movement than the drone rotating.
Do some testing where you can observe the drone.
Is it hovering in place correctly?

I will do some tests later. Like I said, on start up the gimbal moves to the right slightly. Slow enough like this time lapse take over about 20 minutes.
