When I was forced to upgrade to GO-4, the gimbal is now 10 degrees to the left after auto calibration.
How do I calibrate the gimbal yaw please?

With DJI Go4 V4.1.20 (and perhaps earlier) there are roll & yaw adjustments in Gimbal Settings / Adjust Gimbal.

I've not tried the yaw adjustment myself, but it should work I would think.

There was also an alternate method to use during calibration, that was to have aircraft tilted back and resting on rear arms when calibrating.

Thanks for replying.
Doing the auto calibrate with the drone sitting back does not work.
If you look at the menu in GO-4 there is no adjustment for yaw, it has been removed by DJI.

Yeah I have the same issue, I've just been dealing with it lately It seems to straighten out in flight, but if I'm recording a scene for more than 30 seconds sitting still, you can see the image slowly yaw to the left. Wish there was a fix to this but I have yet to find one.

I'm looking, and I have it, perhaps because I'm on 02.0.0600 Beta firmware.

I remember the yaw adjustment was introduced earlier and then disappeared primarily because it didn't work.

That would be great to have but unfortunately its not in GO-4. From memory it looks a lot like the older DJI GO before the update.

That is DJI Go 4. Or at least, the iOS version.

The Beta firmware for the P4 (02.00.0600) can be requested by sending a personal message to one of the mods with your account login name (usually your email address). When it’s been authorised you can see it in DJI Assistant 2, and update from there.

Is there a calibration pot on the controller board?

Might be available in next Android release. I have never heard of any calibration potentiometer for the gimbal yaw adjustment.

If the gimbal yaw tilts, please try the steps below:
1. Power off the drone, try to push it in the opposite direction to the limit for several times and check again.
2. If it doesn't help, please try to calibrate the gimbal as the picture shows below.
See if it works for you. gimbal cali.png

Thank you. Yes I have tried that and it did not fix the problem.

Could you please provide me with a picture of the drone and a screenshot of view on the app? Thank you.

Thank you all for your help, my fault with the yaw 10 degrees out is now fixed. After the last post by you Thor, I went back and attempted the calibration with the P4 arms perpendicular to the horizon rather than the body leaning back on the motors or leaning forward on the skids. With the arms pointing directly up the auto calibration fixed the 10 degree error.
With me now able to record footage out in awesome national parks I'm a happy camper again. I'm also a professional video editor so having the cinematography medium is part of my work.
Once again thank you for your valuable assistance.
Cheers, Dave

I’m going to have to try this calibration again only this time perpendicular like Steamplane did. Didn’t work the other way for me either. Same issue on my Advanced but not on my Standard. Spent a while looking for that yaw setting myself after a recommendation about it a week ago but never could find it. Now I know why.

I had that yaw off flying by 10 degrees or so. So annoying and I'm going on vacation soon!
I've just tried the calibration exactly like on that image at point 2 from DJI Thor's post. I can't fly anymore today, but is there any other way to find out it's fixed other than flying?
I so hope this fixed it! I don't even know how this was caused

maybe your YAW motor sensors got damaged :/ I read like sometimes it happen, then you have to take apart gimbal to look at YAW motor itself
