Hi,

After a hard landing my DJI phantom 4 camera moves very slightly to the right and left (not straight away, after about 30 seconds post power on).

do I assume this is a hardware fault thus requiring a new Yaw motor? Keep getting a message about the gimbal overloading. Tried IMU and gimbal calibration

could anyone please explain the best approach to take.

main questions:
1) How do I know which motor is the correct one, are there two types?
2) Do I need to remove the casing from the old motor one to balance it properly etc..
3) what is the likely hood this is the only part I need? Previous experience or knowledge welcome.

many thanks in advance
Rob

I had the exact same issue. It's the Yaw motor position sensors that get damaged when the gimbal suffers a violent shock because the gimbal and camera hang of the yaw motor. Bangood £38 and yes change the old metal outer casing of your original motor onto the new plastic rotor assembly. Took me about 2 hours, being careful. You need a torx 6, and very small pozi screwdriver.
