Matrice 210 camera drifting

Has anyone experienced this or can anyone help me fix the following issue? When flying a flight plan whether it's a grid, norm, or line mission, the camera's yaw orientation seems to drift. The camera stays nadir but it yaws or rotates to the right while flying. I have to constantly push the button under the controller that recenters the orientation to straight. It really hasnt been too big of a problem for me but we have some new guys flying and they are forgetting to push this button to reorient the camera. I have to do it at the beginning of every flight line and periodically throughout each line if the line is long enough. If left unchecked, the camera orientation drifts so bad that eventually I dont have the overlap needed and some have barely any over lap at all. This has done this since we purchased

This is something we are aware of that just started happening in the last 6 months or so with most DJI aircraft. The weirder part is that the camera's yaw reading is still aligned with the path of travel so it isn't something the app can even detect and correct for... It seems like DJI changed something in firmware and isn't taking this alignment into account. 

We have reported it but have heard nothing back.

Look for version 4.1.3+. Enable 'Advanced Settings' at the bottom and then change the 'Turn Mode' to 'Straight'. This will help the gimbal issues hopefully.
