Hi everyone.
I crash my phantom 4 advance and the gimbal were broken.

I bought the all parts for the reublished, but i see a one video on youtube (
) that say the motor yaw of gimbal must have the old base. And OK, but i can not take off the old base of the old motor yaw.

I will attach a one photo of the problem. May be someone can help me.

Thanks a lot

Sorry for your mishap,,I'm sure cause no circlip it pressed on shaft,,looking at my broken p4s one it seems it need to be in a vice so can tap the centre shaft to remove it

Hi! I finded the way for to remove the part of the old motor yaw. But .... I have a other problem.

The old motor yaw have the cable broken. That is it doesn't work for me the old base of motor yaw (and his synchronization).

So, at time the install the new motor yaw, may be have a problem with de synchronization of gimbal ?? This is 100% corrtect?

Just buy a replacement motor that is a full unit... Why would you ever want to replace that part yourself?

In order to match up with the yaw esc, the old motor casing has to be used. It is fairly easy to do. Just watch the video I did on YouTube.

The motor probably don´t work because the flat cable is broken. If you are a electronic enthusiast maybe can weld the flat cable.
Is what i do and it´s 5 stars. If you want i put a photo whith the final work, but i have to take it in the drone.:D

Kind of looks like the yaw arm is bent. Can not tell for sure in the photos. If it is replace it. Did you use the original casing from the old yaw motor or just put a different yaw motor in? If it is a completely different yaw motor with a different housing ( casing) you are very lucky in comes close to pointing straight ahead.
