    Looks bent to me. Getting the right (facing the front) landing gear in some of my shots. Thoughts and suggestions? If someone has a shop and a price quote I'll entertain that as well.

    It looks like the yaw arm is bent. You can buy them separately. They show up every so often on Ebay. There's one Ebay seller who has ones he's had made himself that are tougher than factory.

    It may be that the yaw arm is pressed against the plate on the base (the 3" x 3" top box), which is keeping it from returning to center.

    I'm surprised you don't have other issues.

    That's the vendor I was thinking of, robsquad. He's a good guy.
