    My fellow pilots. Drone problems are big problems. I've crashed. I had the rope hanging on the landing gear. Just to test if p4 can carry stuff. Nothing was attached to the rope. After taking off, the rope flew to the props. That's how I crashed. About 4 to 6 meters. Now my gimbal is not responding properly. Like I have no camera control any more. Do you guys have any idea how I can get myself out of this problem

    Start by taking the camera off and check the ribbon cables while you are doing it. One may have pulled out. It should fly just fine without the camera on it, so while you have it off, check the bird and make sure it still flies. Look for any breaks or scratches on the ribbon cables and then make sure that they are all completely pushed in as you put it back together. Then if it doesn't work you can either send your camera in for repair or do it yourself if you have the experience.

    Hey Reed, thanks. That sounds quite easy. But I'm not sure how to remove the camera. How do I go about?
