    After a recent accident the gimbal flat wire needed replaced. After replacing it everything seems to turn on fine but the camera controls are messed up. Not only is the camera at a tilt but now when I move the camera wheel that's supposed to pitch the camera the yaw motor wants to move. My thoughts are bad wire or I didn't get one of the connections in completely? I did do a complete teardown of my Phantom and painted the shell. Now it wants a firmware update even though I just updated it last week. Any suggestions?

    Did you calibrate IMU and gimbal after repair? There have been two updates recently. Maybe it's looking the the newest one?

    I did try gimbal calibration. Could imu fix? Guess it's worth try before tearing down again

    I don't know for sure. But worth a try. I think IMU calibration is recommended after alterations or a crash and repair.
    Then do gimbal calibration.

    Here are some instruction videos.
