    Hi Guys,

    Just picked up a P3A and the camera is acting up. You'll see in my YouTube video that the camera is level during the initial warmup and then immediately drops to the ground. Any reason why this might be? DJI is useless.



    Thanks!

    I've had that before. The beeping is the main concern - what does the app say?

    From memory turned it off and on a few times and the issue went away. When it comes back do a gimbal calibration.

    Have you put an SD card in with a firmware update on it? From the beeping sound, and the small flashing light on the front of the gimbal it seems that your P3 is in firmware update procedure.
