    Hi all!

    I am rather new here but have been droning for a while. I am really frustrated with my DJI Phantom Pro 3. Not only has the video been jittery, no fix seems to work. I tried with the gimbal, resetting, updating the firmware on everything, doing IMU (twice), and everything in between. Below is footage that I shot today with the problem. I need the drone for a music video shoot Friday, which is coming up really fast. If you have any advice, it would be really appreciated.

    look at the top of the yaw arm where it is attached to the yaw shaft (top motor going through the top case of the gimbal)
    there is a 2mm small hex screw in there. pull the yaw arm all the way down and tighten that hex screw to the shaft.

    ok that was my first option.
    2nd is rotated magnet on the shaft.

    where are you located?

    sorry first i typed bad potentiometer, thinking it's a P2V+ gimbal LOL
    P3 gimbals don't have potentiometers on the yaw arm but magnet "map" sensors
    i corrected the answer.

    you can't. you'll need a new yaw motor with a shaft.

    LOL...

    take two diagonally installed pins OUT.
    that's causing your shakes.
    only use two - diagonally installed pins and pin locks

    the yaw arm with good magnet then.. i just wanted to see the photo, me thinking you have all 4 pins installed which i've seen in the past
    have caused the issues like that.
    so last thing i thing it would be is the magnet on the yaw shaft unless someone else has a suggestion.

    Maybe a stupid thought. Maybe not. Your props balanced? I know that usually results in jello but maybe :)

    And I presume you have done a gimbal cal yes?
