    Ok, so I got the gimbal on the vision 2 and I have it relatively in a good spot I think. So I take it outside to test it and now I can't get any battery information or satellite information. I did very carefully solder the power directly to the main board feed. The vision powers up fine. The gimbal powers up fine. The camera works.

    So after reading some on here, I figured maybe the camera cable got damaged some how. So I replace it with a new one from DJI. Same deal. I changed the batteries out and tried different batteries, no change. I made sure the camera cord was all the way in. I'm just not sure other than replacing the main board if there is anything else I can try. It was working find before I tried to do this mod.

    The only thing I can think of is the soldering did something to the board. If so, wow, I thought I was very careful. And pretty much if I have to replace the main board, then I will have to do 10 soldering joints from what I have read.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Jeff
