    Hi All,

    Not had my dji phantom 2 long and have crashed it!

    Everything looks fine but when I turn it on the gimbal starts moving underneath the phantom and whirring and never stops when its on the floor,

    When in the air the gimbal moves, but hangs permanently to one side?? it also shudders

    Is there anything I can do or have I ruined it?

    Also the motors on the gimbal get RED HOT - never noticed that before but they are bouncing hot

    Cheers

    You are more than likely out of luck.
    You can take it to DJI, but they'll take about 4-8 weeks.
    You can save up enough money to buy a new gimbal in that amount of time ;P
