    Hey guys, I've been flying my vision plus for a bit and totally screwed up by grazing a tree and causing the drone to crash. I still was able to turn it on and off but now I can't control the camera.. The camera it self shows bang marks and the arm that holds the camera seems to be stuck. Not sure how the bang marks happened as the legs were on but they too are showing bending from the crash. I'm about to buy the camera again for 700$ but would love to see if there's another option, other than that or buying it all over again. I'm attaching pictures. Is it possible that wires got disconnected that I may be able to reconnect? I would still use it even if the camera is stuck. As long as it works. So frustrating!

    I feel your pain. My 1st major crash was with a tree as well. But, I can't imagine how it's possible to bend the legs unless maybe flying at full speed.

    I would check to see if green light is coming on the camera and work from there for a solution.
