    Have a look at the attached clip from today's flight.

    You'll notice several seconds of shaky video where the gimble can't seem to keep up. Then it gets smooth again. I was flying directly with a 15-20mph gusty breeze. Surprised that turbulence would have caused this....but maybe?? It's like when a airplane is flying directly with the wind and gets bounced around. Any other theories?

    Looks a bit like it - you don't have the gimbal set for FPV do you?

    Gimble mode set on follow not FPV, so that's not it

    This looks like the dreaded gimbal tilt issue. Like neven said do the imu and gimbal calibration and if no joy send it for repair.
