    Does anyone else noticed that at the bottom of the gimble the camera ribbon bends ... Within the bend do you see what looks like a separation of the ribbon cable? On the underside of the bend, a little hump of ribbon cable ..... Look carefully in good light.

    I noticed that as well after I crashed my P3. I replaced with a new ribbon because I thought it might be the reason my gimbal wont work. The new ribbon also had that "hump". I showed it to a technician at my work and he said that was normal and shouldn't be a problem. "It allows flexibility for when the camera is moving".

    Mine has never been crashed and the cable has no requirement for flexibility. It doesn't move when the gimble moves

    Of coarse your camera moves on the gimbal (3 axis)... that's the reason a gimbal exists; if not you have a much bigger problem on your hands!

    We're not talking about the GIMBLE, were talking about the cable!
