    Basically long story short, i crashed, one prop broke but thats not the issue, the gimbal now makes this grinding sounds, a red light comes on in the gimbal when i turn the drone on, the gimbal is not level and does not tilt all the way down, please help.

    I had a the same problem not to long ago
    i found the problem and I fix it
    under the position view there is a module on that module you plug the camera the plug was broken so look if yours is alright
    the camera has 2 plug that plugs in the aircraft the one that i am talking about is on the back back wire that connects under the positrioning you can see it good
    see if the plus is broken.
    I was lucky someone has broken his aircraft and that part was good so mine could be repaired.

    You may need to pop it open and see if the compass is still connected. In a hard crash sometime the connector breaks off. U need to be good at soldering to fix it. If u are not good at it take it to an electrics guy with good equipment. Your everyday soldering gun will not do.
