We found an article online from a pilot sharing his calibration about V+ Gimbal level. Let’s see!
After long-time operation, some Phantom V+ gimbals are not leveled; it could affect the photography quality. The author tried to self-calibrate the gimbal, but the problem still existed. Some pilots had no choice but sent back to the manufacturer.
The problem exists due to faulty design. The ROLL axis is assembled only by a core shaft and aluminum cover. After long-time operation and shock, the structure will be loosened gradually.
The author removed the ROLL cover to check if the potentiometer is not leveled. From the picture below, we can see the default level is tilt.
Let’s see the modification!
1. Loosen the fixing screws and carefully remove the back cover of ROLL axis.
2. Lift the PCB and disconnect the black connector of the flat cable. A long tweezers will help a lot!
3. Check the core shaft of ROLL axis. See? The core shaft is tilt.
Take a plier to fix the core shaft and adjust the camera level. Try to make them leveled with each other.
After the modification, please assemble the PCB and cover back.
