    I crashed my phatom at 8ft into a tree branch on 4th flight.
    Stupid move.
    Further the camera came off the camera arm.
    I put it back on immediately and the camera arm now shakes uncontrollably.
    The app says gimbal motor overload.
    Does anyone know how I can reset this and or make sure I have my camera on properly?
    Thank you for the help or advice.

    A few photos would help...
    It's not easy to re-attach the camera if it came off... (cables, ribbon cables, etc)
    No easy way to "reset"...

    This happened with my p2. Look up gimbal fix on YouTube. It will show you how to replace the ribbon cable, epoxy the camera back on the shaft. I bought a "gimbal saver" which prevents the camera from separating from killer RC. Good thing about the p3 is if you glue the camera on a little crooked you can adjust it in the app. You can't for the p2+ that's the only reason I sold mine. Good luck!
