Hi,

I am having a problem with my camera on my P3P. It has been perfect and I've only had it for about 5 months. For some reason the camera now points to the left about 6 - 7degrees and won't point staright forward. The horizon is level, just the camera isn't pointing straight forward. I have tried mutiple IMU calibrations, in the fridge and room temperature followed up each time with a gimbal calibration. It goes straight temporarily and then it creeps back to point to the left again. Any ideas?

As a suggestion, I had a similar problem after a crash & rebuild. In my case it was simply the set screw on the gimbal axis that had loosened. Check to see that the screw is aligned with the half-flat on the shaft. It was an easy fix.

Hi!!

My camera also turned crooked, then slowly getting going straight.

But my horizon is not straight occasionally.

Does the calibration is normal ??

Hi Michael,
Here's something to try, in the advanced settings of your gimbal param settings, turm off the "gimbal yaw synchronous follow" and see if it still drifts.

Here is a video Patrick. The camera straightens after calibrating and then slowly drifts to the left and stop pointing off by 6-7 degrees or so. What can I do to fix it?

anyone who watches other shots from phantom 3 on youtube will notice that most of the time you only see mainly one prop on the photo rather than two. this is super frustrating for me and many others. Dji, please consider making an adjustmen like you do for the gimbal roll. Pease make an option to adjust gimbal yaw.

Have you put a screwdrive in it to check that ?

It would really be nice if there was a trim adjustment for the azimuth aim of the camera like there is for the horizon tilt.

Frustrating to never be able to fly forward properly.  Always goes by on the side of the target instead of over it.

I too have this issue on my P3A. My camera drifts slightly to the left a few degrees. Have tried IMU calibration, gimbal calibration, and that screw is tight on my gimbal arm.

Same Problem here. The only solution is to replace the YAW Motor Shaft by one wich is complete round. DJI simply add a YAW Gimbal Adjustmend in Software!!!
