    Was flying today at night. Was a bit cold, a little windy, but overall was fine. Have 10 minute footage where everything goes smoothly, besides one tiny moment, which i think i have to pay attention to.

    Doing this turn, the camera is a bit shaky here. You can see in this video.

    What do you think is the reason for this? Rest of the flight everything was fine. So i dont think this is about wind.

    I think the gimbal hit the stop, it probably was windier than you realise higher up, but the abrupt turn is the main issue - it couldn't keep up.

    Can also FPV mode be the reason for it?

    It should still be held under control with a kind of delayed smoothing action.
    Follow mode is usually used for video and aims to keep the gimbal level

    I mean the gimbal would be held under control whichever mode, it isn't more inclined to hit the stop in FPV mode.

    So this shakiness is not something to be worried about?

    What do you mean by hitting the stop in this case?
