    When I powered the unit on today the gimbal does not hold stead but shakes in all directions.
    Power reset doesn't help.
    When connected to the app I get "remove gimbal clamp" error message.
    All ribbons appear intact and there's no obvious damage or debris.
    It did hit a tree and land on its back but seemingly flew fine after that.
    Any suggestions?

    I've just spoken to local support Heli Guys and it seems this is a common problem - such that they are considering no longer selling it as it's so unreliable.

    Happy to report that I "straightened" that axle/pin shown in some of the photos about this issue and it seems to have fixed it. I'm yet to try to fly it but I hope, unlike other reports, that this is a permanent fix. I'm no engineer but it there does seem to be room for improvement in the design.
