    Hi, my low flying Phantom hit a tree today. I haven't flown it again yet but it seems like it should fly ok. However, the camera arm was bent fairly badly but I managed to gently twist it back. It is showing images fine on the phone and it's tilting up and down fine. But now when I move the phantom around I get a 'Gimbal motor error' message and I can hear the motor whirring away helplessly.Should I take it apart or has anyone any suggestions? Can you get a full replacement unit for the plus. I couldn't see anything online.

    Help!

    I might take it apart. Has anyone ever removed the camera and gimbal before? It doesn't look too difficult. Looking for pointers
