    Bought my P4 2 days ago ang noticed that the metal ring in the upper part has moved or tilted . Flying on sport mode maybe has affected this it warns gimbal overload or maybe a factory defect. I tried to straighten it out using a hobby knife but its just tight. Never crashed my P4. It doesn't bind gimbal is normal Anybody had the same issue as mine?Any fix or solution?? Please help thanks see attached pics and video.[​IMG][​IMG]

    It must be bent. That part is between the gimbal motor and mounting plate. There should be no reason for it not to be straight other than being distorted.

    So upon understanding what u explained its just normal. Looking at my brothers P4 his is straight mine is tilting on the front. If thats the case then i'll just leave it Like that since it doesn't affect the bird or the gimbal movements gimbal ok no binding issues. In my opinion I'd rather straighten it out but removing the screws and opening the gimbal assembly is a pain in the butt

    That piece is like a cup with a centering hole and it is sandwiched between the yaw motor and its mounting plate. There should be no reason why it is not level/straight with the rest of the gimbal. Unless its bent or not seated correctly between the yaw motor and mounting plate.

    That pic is very helpful in my situation perhaps i'll open mine and straighten it out if you can get a pic of that housing assembly on the upper part of your pic that would be very helpful so i can see the internal wires connected to the camera holder at your convenience since u might take it apart again is a pain in the butt.

    Here are some old pictures. You have to take the whole gimbal asmbly off.
    BE CAREFUL when removing the circuit board above the yaw motor..... the ribbon is very delicate.
