    When im flying the gimbal continues to yaw left even after its in a hover.

    I have tried to calibrate the gimbal and the imu.

    Any idea whats going on.

    Both my advance and the pro is doing this

    If both of your gimbals are doing the same, you have an evil eye there :)

    Jokes apart, I think you are not doing calibration on perfectly leveled surface.

    Hello, I just calibrate the imu and the gimbal, use an app to check for magnetic fields and metal and other to check if it's perfectly level,
    I use metal detector and bubble level on Android

    Just fly mine for a few minutes to check out if it's hover right, I was watching the phanton for like 5 minutes and seems to keep in position moving just a little maybe +-15 to 20cm at low wind
