Stopping after an acute angle turn

I noticed twice today and once yesterday that my Inspire 1 Pro would sometimes stop moving after making a turn. It would just hover, not knowing what to do next. Today I found what I think was the common link. In each of the three instances, the drone had just made roughly a 170 degree turn, heading back to wrap up the last leg of a mission. Landing and launching again fixed the issue. Thought you might want to be aware of this.

Halting during flight is usually caused by a gimbal overload error which tends to happen more often with X5 cameras but does occasionally happen on P3 and P4 aircraft. This will usually happen after there has been a crash or camera contact with the ground during a hard landing.

Hi Tudor,

I didn't have any crashes or hard landings, and certainly no ground contact with the camera. The flight flew without incident until the very last leg, which had the acute turn. I'll do some more testing to see if it is repeatable and report back. In the meantime, when I'm planning a mission, I'll adjust the angle of the mission to avoid such acute angles.

I had a tiny mission to fly yesterday to cover part of a field I had missed previously. This had an acute angle in it, but it flew just fine. I'll keep notes going forward if I experience this issue again.
