The attached PDF was developed to assist a forum member who had bought a used and “user repaired” CGo3. The camera was pointing right, bumped against the mount frame, and the Yaw (top) motor trying to turn it further. The problem was the prior owner had apparently misaligned the mounting screws where the rear arm is connected to the Yaw motor. Correct alignment of this joint is difficult if the positions were not marked during disassembly. (Their are no factory markings)
Unfortunately, it is one of those mechanical arrangements where “If you want to move this piece “right”, you move that piece “left”, confused by the fact you are working with it upside down, so left IS right, and ….
The first half of the PDF is “old news”. It was copied from an earlier post where a member just needed access to the screws. The content of that post was modified slightly to meet this newer need, and then a method and steps required to correct an existing bad alignment were added.
This is a tedious read, but it should help minimize some frustration if anyone ever needs it.
