    Is your ribbon still intact?
    How is your gimbal dead?
    Look up loctite (sp) and see If there is a solution.

    lock the gimbal ( glue it up with the camera horizontal and pointing level or slightly down ) and disconnect the power to the gimbals motors. you then have a plain old vision without the tilt function. IF?? the tilt mechanism part of the gimbal is undamaged and still functional, you might be able to glue the other 2 axis and disconnect those motors but leave the tilt motor operational to turn into a plain old vision with a working tilt??
