What should I pay attention to when using the built-in gimbal lock on DJI Mavic 3?

DJI Mavic 3 (Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine) features a built-in gimbal lock to prevent the 3-axis gimbal and camera from shaking, adding an additional layer of safety during transportation and storage. Precautions for use:

1. The normal operating temperature of the gimbal lock is -10° to 40° C (14 to 104° F). If temperatures are outside of this range, it may fail to lock or unlock properly. You will be prompted by the DJI Fly app to use it within the temperature range. For emergency use in special situations, you can manually twist the three axes without damaging the gimbal itself, but this measure is not recommended.

2. The built-in gimbal lock may become unlocked due to external impact. In this case, power on the aircraft and then power off to lock again.

3. After the gimbal is locked, vibrations in each axis may occur.
