    crashed PV2+ after flying too close to a power transformer during an inspection. Now has crazy gimbal dance, which I've read all about, but all shafts and pots seem fine. Unit took a hard hit, as gimbal arm was a bit bent. Actually surprised there was not more visible damage. Have tried the realignment of pots, motor shafts, etc. but no dice. Wondering if there could have been something additional on software or hardware caused by the power transformer. Open to any thoughts. Thanks!

    Jungle- are u saying that the dji software does not include gimbal adjustment for the phantom 2 vision + unit?

    I was about to start searching the software. Given all the problems I've seen with this issue, you'd think someone would have come up with a work around.

    Thanks.

    Dead pitch/yaw board or a damaged potentiometer on the board.
    Check the D shaft and make sure the alignment isn't upside down.
    Also check the hidden grub hex screw at the top of the gimbal arm.

    You need a spare work gimbal and camera to test.
