    Sorry, no ... it was not a sophisticated fix.

    I used a flexible piece of plastic sheet, like a hotel key card, the credit card was too thick and too stiff. I cut the squarish notch in the plastic, the width was just enough to fit the yaw shaft's notch/flat area.
    The plastic is used to keep the shaft from moving while you try to rotate the arm to correct the error by fastening it in a bit off position, and screwing the retaining screw at the same time.

    I am pretty sure there is another way but it would involve recalibrating or replacing the servo that controls the yaw movement ... a trip back to the factory most likely.

    Sorry, have no idea what is causing that shaky video.
    Is the video from the drone or from the GO app device?

    There is a way... Except the go app adjusts it itself! When you start it you'll see the camera slowly centering itself.

    Otherwise my guess is the gimbal is bent ever so slightly?

    Also, on the Yaw arm there is a set screw that goes into the top! If you loosen it, I believe you can move the arm a little and then lock it back down!

    Which arm you are talking about ....the arm that is connected to the main board where we insert the micro sd card ?? ... I have changed the ribbon cable and the Yaw arm too....the arm is printed by tonny bock purchased from eBay

    Check and compare with the source video file on the SD card. What you see/capture on the GO app is a lower res higher compression downlink that can be affected by the signal quality/latency.

    The 3D arm is probably the issue they are far from perfect in my opinion

    Duh, you withheld crucial info in your original post ... and probably more ... crashed drone?
