    Not that being first is something to brag about in this situation. I got in about 3 weeks of flying and then I fired up the ship and got no picture from the camera on my nVidia Shield (a great tablet for the Phantom 3, btw). I had successfully updated and flown w/the latest firmware, so that wasn't it. At the top center of the tablet, I got a "No Signal" on a red rectangle. The gimbal would do a self check and then work upon ship start up, but would go to sleep after about 20 seconds. Since it died within 30 days, I wasn't happy that DJI had me send it to CA for repair, rather than send me a new one. I figure I will get it back in about 5 weeks (sent it in a week ago). This is a terrible time to be w/o it for 6 weeks, being that it's Summer and gorgeous out. So my questions are have any of you had your camera die and am I likely to be pleasantly surprised by a quick turnaround from DJI?
