    Hello,

    Perhaps anyone has had a similar problem or Yuneec support are able to help me out?

    Gimbal was working fine (stable in yaw and roll) except was not pitching up and down.
    Was said to be the main board problem and ordered a new one from Yuneec and replaced (did not receive any instructions with the product) (part nr: YUNCGO2GB105SVC )

    The gimbal is now not working at all an act's like see in the video.


    Calibration from software does not do anything.

    Any help?

    Unfortunately, you cannot change out the gimbal board yourself. A new gimbal board has to be mated to the exact gimbal sensors of the camera it is to serve. Yuneec has never released the software and procedure for this. The only remedy I know of for this board would be to send it to a Yuneec service center for calibration.

    Do you still have the original gimbal board? The tilt issue you described has often been caused by a bad connector on the right side of the gimbal board. The two empty connectors beside it are spares. It is possible the only thing you need to do is reinstall the original gimbal board and use one of the spare connectors.

    Hello mates.

    I have same issue here and its started after board changing. I also ordered board offical yuneec shop and so I thinked it is only plug and play because no any quides come with it. But it seems it needs that calibration.
    It's quite weird from Yuneec sell parts like that without any information of changing.

    I have the identical problem on my Typhoon Q500+. I checked all the connections after removing the camera from the isolation/vibration mount and all seems ok. I then installed the camera on the handheld ProAction SteadyGrip and get “identical results” so I am convinced the issue is with the camera only and nothing to do with the camera to drone handshake. My next step is to open the camera itself and see if anything is unplugged or broken. I don’t really care if I trash it because the gimbal doesn’t work anyways. I might apply some JB Weld to gimbal components so I can at least fly the drone as it’s useless right now without a functional camera that hangs sideways like yours and jerks itself. If that doesn’t work I’ll be selling it for cheap as a parts unit. Too bad because I’ve put over $1,400 into this thing!

    @Lambruceco,
    Your camera issue sounds like it may be different. The "jerk" implies it is not initializing properly. Try tilting the drone back onto the rear motors, turning it on, and leaving it tilted until the camera initializes. This "45 degree tilt" trick worked on some CGo2 and CGo2+ cameras. I do not recall anyone reporting that it will work on a CGo3.
