    Had a hard landing and now tilt doesn't work on my china gimbal. Also big yellow alone wire coming out of the bottom of my phantom. Can't remember if it was attached to anything or maybe just antenna. HELP!!

    Can you please post pics? The yellow wire hooks to naza and is your pitch control wire! Thanks

    That would explain I guess. I can't see where I was attached to the gimbal though. ImageUploadedByPhantomPilots - DJI Phantom Forum1443011469.963592.jpg

    Btw is works fine in flight side to side and up and down. I just can't use the control on my app to adjust tilt up and down. I assume "pitch" is same as "tilt" up and down

    I finally figured out the yellow wire is my tilt control wire coming off the F2 on the naza. It is supposed to be soldered into the A0 port on the board so I'm going to have to re-solder it should be good to go. It tore out when I had a hard landing and knocked the camera gear off.

    New problem with gimble. Left and right fine but up and down just jerks like it is hitting something but it's not. Does it both up and down. Any ideas?
