    Everything works except the camera. The camera powers on and spins like it normally does but then I points way left or right. No Control over up and down and after about 30 seconds it gives up and moves freely. Any advice to fixing it would be greatly appreciated. Anyway to the good part... Here's the crash:

    So many things could be wrong with it... I wouldn't attempt to fix it myself. You'll be without it for quite a long time. Hopefully you'll get it back from them and they actually fix everything that is wrong with it, and not just "one of the problems" that are bound to occur with that type of crash.

    I'd check the old ribbon cable. Look for any damage to it.

    I'd buy a new one... send this in for repair... and then sell one of them if you can't afford to keep both. Gimbal is about the most expensive thing you can wreck (unfortunately).

    Just another reason why you should never depend entirely on FPV.
