    So while installing the Feiyu tech gimbal the other day I seen a small puff of smoke from the board. Defenatly my fault as I plugged the zenmuse cable into my gimbal which I'm pretty sure caused it..I pulled battery out within a second...after this I installed properly..test flew and everything still worked..gimbal, phantom, gps...so I decided to take up with the GoPro on...about a minute and half into flight I was about 60ft up it just took off backwards and lost all control...crashed pretty hard but yet everything still works fine..haven't flown again yet though..can anyone tell me what this is on the board? Where the smoke came from..also if anyone knows why it decided to just fly off? I flew it for about 10 mins prior no problems[​IMG]

    Any chance that you were using the GoPro's wifi to view the video feed during your crash?
