    The other day a dog attacked my DJI Phantom 2 Vision Plus when I was attempting to take off. The dog simply came from behind me by surprise and grabbed my drone and turned it upside down. This is my brothers dog and I take blame for the dog as the dog was having fun chasing my drone just before this happened. It was stupid of me not making sure the dog was secure before attempting to take off. The dog really didn’t do much to it to do any kind of damage. But after it happened, I noticed the camera doing a sort of break dance motion. It wouldn't stop so I went on youtube to find out if there was a fix. The following video are the instructions I followed. From the person on the YouTube shows taking the back panel off and making sure the rod was properly aligned would fix the problem, so I did that. I then turned the drone back on and it was still doing the jittery movement as before. I then watched a video speaking of the cable/ribbon may be bent or somehow damaged. So I took off the cable protector that I purchased off that is supposed to protect the ribbon but the ribbon was damaged. I found this to be impossible because the ribbon protector which covers the ribbon is to protect the ribbon. Looking at the ribbon it looks like the cover is what damaged the ribbon when I slide the cover over the ribbon and the cover made a connection with the ribbon pushing the ribbon downwards from the shape of the ribbon? I am going to take a couple of photo’s hoping someone here with knowledge on this matter can give me some advise on this to see if you I'm right or not. The first photo below shows the ribbon cover on and the second photo shows the cover as I pulled it off. Someone, would you PLMK what I should do?
    Thank you very much in advance for your time,
    Tommy

    Yep, looks like it is damaged. The ribbon cables are very fragile. I could see where something like that covering it could damage it. I would use something like the killer RC gimble protector than something that covers the ribbon. You can purchase 2 ribbon cables for around $45.00 from DDM or if you are not comfortable replacing, either take it to your local quad repair shop or send it to hunch or Jeremy (Burbark). There are several videos on line to show how to replace cables.
    Good luck.

    Seriously?

    Why bother even posting. I bet you you make fun of unfortunate kids with down syndrome also, don't ya. I can't imagine having a major issue and come on a forum that is well known for the support members give only to find that someone has just kicked me in the teeth while I'm down. Now if you know the guy personally and you're just messing with him, then I apologize for mentioning anything.

    Btw, I didn't have any trouble reading it. Matter of fact my post probably look a lot like the one above at times.
