Had several instances where the UAS {Parrot Anafi} would violently yaw left and right until I stopped moving and held hover with the sticks at neutral. It was as if it had hit an invisible wall and refused to move forward. It was very random when it would have this issue. I had had probably 9 flights before I started noticing this as a recurring issue. Each time UAS was landed without incident.

Reported Cause

Unusual control issue.
