    My gimbal was damage due to crash and got a few questions?

    1. As anyone flew their Phantom 3 without a gimbal without feed back from DJI go?
    2. The connector which connect to the gimbal, anyone know the wiring configuration of this loom?
    3. Can a another gimbal other than a DJI be used instead connected to wiring loom, as the DJI gimbal and camera is costly?

    This is possible, but not recommended since it'll be harder to fly without that feedback.

    No.

    You can fly but it now becomes line of sight only and restricts a lot of functionality. It also decreases recovery ifnyoungetnto far away and loose line of sight and try to bring it back but send it further away. Stay close and keep the direction in mind. Home lock may still help to bring it back but you have to be a lot more careful flying. No video or pictures bummer.
