    When flying today, suddenly the machine behaved very oddly and in the end had a soft crash on grass.
    Turns out that the gimbal arm broke off mid air and the camera was dangling in a cable.

    Anybody been through this before?
    Can you fix it with spare parts or do you need to buy a new gimbal?

    Were you filming at the time? If so I'd send the footage to your dealer and ask for a replacement.
