    well i figured it would happen i got too used to flying fpv that i had my first crash

    the phantom is ok body wise

    the camera still works(thank god)

    the quad flys ok but the gimble does''t work

    so i landed it and brought it in and checked it over and notice the wiring harness for the gimbal is damaged

    one of the wires is severed the other two are badly chafed

    i don't know it they touched or not but i did notice a odd smell afterwards

    i guess this will teach me not to fly close to trees as i didn't know it till it was too late and the quad flipped and crashed and th battery flew out(luckily the camera didn't come loose)

    is this going to be a easy fix or is it possible that i need to replace a part???

    i did a imi calibration afterwards and turned the gimbal control off in the software
