Many of us are having issue where our gimbal will not point straight. Calibrations do not help. You know how there is an option to adjust gimbal roll? Why not add the option to adjust gimbal yaw so we dont have to send our birds in and wait 3 months without them? It s a quick solution for us having problems and costs you nothing.

Please consider! I really dont want tk send my bird in for something so small but annoying.

So are you saying during your entire flight the camera is not pointing straight?
I know sometimes when powering up the camera will be a little off on the yaw but it slowly points straight with 10 seconds or so.
If it is staying off center for all your flights the id suggest resetting all the settings and see if that helps.

If I fly straight stick forward, it goes to a point to the right of image center.  Been that way since brand new in July.  I've massaged it a little by moving the gimbal arm on the shaft, but it isn't far enough yet.

Interesting. When I fly forward mine tilts a little. My dealer is too greedy to fix it. When my bird had a flyaway they replaced it with a used phantom pro and plopped my old still functioning advanced gimbal on it. Don't know if it's my crashed camera, it works great or the firmware but seriously if you expect serive, don't go to drones plus. They are super kind but don't honkr their warranty. This happened a while back  and I'm still fuming about it.

Hi!

Hi , Darkfito
For the first  case , I've reorted this issue and we are working on this ;
For the second case , I've reported this suggestion .
For the third case , I've suggested him to try an IMU calibration .
For the forth case ,sorry I did't notice that . Could you please post a video and log og that ? I can't see them in the forum .
For the fifth case , this problem can be solve by updating the firmware .
Anyway , thanks for collecting these case and thank you for your support !

Can you explain how you did that?  I have the same issue, but is less pronounced, and your tweak might be enough for me.  
The attached image is built from 3 different photos.  The top one is taken at close range.  Then I backed up ~50 feet and snapped #2.  Then forward to close range again to get #3.  All were imported and aligned (left) in 1 image, then reference lines were drawn, and then all the unnecessary stuff was cropped out.  The yellow line shows the center of the camera frame, while the red line shows the approximate "straight ahead" of the aircraft, judging by what parts of the images remain aligned throughout the test.

Yes, my situation is similar to yours, but I believe it is opposite side.

Loosen the set screw that holds the camera arm azimuth locked to the gimbal shaft.  Hold the shaft, and rotate the gimbal arm in the direction it takes to correct the error - tighten.  Try it out and see how close you got.  Yes, I know the shaft is flat sided and it will be a trick to get the set screw to hold off of the flat, but that is what I've done so far.  I haven't worked on it for awhile, so I'm not sure how far I'll be able to go.

The Gimbal from my P3P points to the right side... I'm hoping for a software solution.

It would still be nice to have this feature in the firmware.

I have exactly the same problem. It would be great to have a Software gimbal yaw correction!

Still no fix for this? I don't see a yaw adjustment still with the latest firmware but my camera has a severe yaw problem to the left. So when I think I'm flying straight, I'm actually pulling to the right significantly. It makes it difficult to actually fly directly to a subject smoothly. I would think this would be easy enough to correct in firmware. the camera is mechanically attached fine, but once the motors turn on, it kicks several degrees off. :-(

Have you already calibrated your drone with IMU and gimbal calibrations?

Yes, I've had the drone since last Spring and tried that a couple of times over the summer, but it always ended up in the same position. I haven't been flying it much lately but I finally took it out again today and was reminded what a PITA it is. :-(

So you tried and it never worked.

How come you never sent it in for repair last year? Or you thought it would miraculously heal itself? ;-)
keep praying then...  

You could still have it fixed.

my yaw arm was bent, got fixed for free under warranty. Honestly im done with the whole smart drone thing. its too easy and boring to fly and when theres a problem theres a long wait to get it fixed. Once you get into diy racing quads youll never go back to "smart drones"!! right redhotpoker??

I've never built any racing drones, yet. But assembling models yourself can be a lot more interesting than simply out of the box flying.
As we know, when there are problems, it can often take several weeks to fix them. If you are more intimately involved with your aircraft, then you might also have spare parts to fix it.

Same problem here, tried IMU cal and and gimbal cal, still points off to the left about 10deg.
Please allow the user to set the zero point on all gimbal axes, How hard can this be?
