    I crashed my p3p a few weeks ago and I had to replace my yaw arm and gimble cable. Since then my camera often won't tilt up or down at startup but will if I move it slightly with my hand to get it unstuck. Any ideas on what the issue could be?

    It also now sometimes only goes 3/4 of the way up while in flight, but will go the full way up if I give it a little push with my fingers.

    Thanks in advance!

    Maybe the ribbon is binding where it wraps around the camera. That would be my guess.

    Good call, that was it. The ribbon isn't sticking so I'll need to figure out what type of glue to use in place of the original adhesive.

    10-4. I'm about to do this repair so I'll keep that in mind.
