Hi DJI Forum staff and members!

I just got my DJI Phantom 4 Pro, and as others I too have the issue the Gimbal is slightly off centered.

I have followed the DJI instructions to correct it, but it will return to the off center after a while.

So, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE:

ADD to the DJI GO 4 app the ability to also adjust the CENTER POINT horizontally of the gimbal.
It would make it real easy for A LOT of owners, Me included!


Looking forward to an answer regarding this issue.


Thanks
an othervise happy Phantom 4 Pro owner!

Aloha Mikey,

     Are you writing about a tilted horizon?  If so, go into the manual adjustment for the level horizon.  Set the manual adjustment to zero, as in no correction to the tilt of the horizon.  Then calibrate the gimbal.  The tilt should go away and the horizon will be level.

     We just solved this problem the other day with my friend's Obsidian.  We could not level the horizon until we zeroed the manual adjustment.

Aloha and Drone On!

Hi there, and thanks for the answer.

No, it is not that adjustment, it is the rotating (seen from above the drone) axis (the Z-axis) of the gimbal.

The gimbal camera lens is not centered between the left and right side (along the horizon if you know what I mean). The camera lens center is pointed a bit to the right of the drone, even after calibrations etc.

Here's a raw illustration:

(R  C  L)      R = Right drone side, L = Left drone side, C = Center of the drone
        o         o = front of lens of camera (to the right of the center)


It should be:
(R  C  L)      R = Right drone side, L = Left drone side, C = Center of the drone
      o       <<<<<< o = correctly centered camera


See the placement of the "o" (camera lens) above!


I've seen others with this problem after doing everything you guys explained, but still the camera is off center, or it fixes it but it will return to off center sooner or later.


This is why I would like to see a gimbal CENTER adjustment (gimbal rotation horizontally - Z-axis)  to be able to adjust the gimbal (camera lens) to the left and right (rotate if seen from above the drone - Z-axis)  in small movements, just like the adjustment for the horizon tilt adjustment you wrote about.



Thank you!

I hope you understand what I mean and are looking for

Aloha Mikey,

     Sorry, this is a new one.  Have you disabled or returned to default all the YAW affecting adjustments and settings?  Might be worth a try before an IMU and gimbal calibration.  That is where I would start.

    Hope this helps!

Aloha and Drone On!

They have been working on a 'yaw' (left/right) adjustment of the gimbal. I have it functioning on my P4 'Standard' with all latest builds and iOS version of DJI Go 4, it also appears on my Android Nexus 7 (MkII) using Android DJI Go 4 V4.1.22.
Although I have not had to use the yaw adjustment, so not sure if it now works correctly or not.

I see both Roll (horizon tilt) and yaw (left/right) adjustments.

An earlier attempt a few months back did not work correctly.

Hi, and thanks for answering.

I have gone through pretty much all steps, twice, but camera is still pointing a bit to the right (drones left).

I have the new firmwares, calibrations, installations and of course version 4.1.22 DJI Go 4.

I found others that had or have the same issue, and instructions from DJI was to turn off the air craft and basically force the gimbal to the opposite side a bit further from the stop point. This helps for a while, but then the gimbal/camera again finds that off center spot, grrrr..... measured from the lens, it is off maybe by a few millimeters.... Annoying as hell.....

BUT... Are you saying you have the Z-axis (left and right) fine adjustment in the Go 4 app???

Thanks
Mike

Hi again!

Yes, of course, I can try that, but I've already done this twice, so... well, I will try it one more time

Is there a function to adjust the yaw (left/right) center point in the go 4 version 4.1.22 ?

If there is not, please add that fine adjustment to the DJI GO 4 app, please!

Thanks
Mike

Thank you!

It is too cold and snowy/wet weather right now. I'm in Sweden, so I have to wait for some dry weather.

I don't want to hurt my new P4P drone in any way...
