    Attempted a tree landing and knocked off the gimbal on my Phantom3. Got the two single wires back on but the wires on the ribbon cable coming out of the drone pulled out of the connector on the gimbal. The problem is the connector is a 10 pin and the cable has 8 wires. I'm assuming the wires go on in order and are not crossed , but I don't know where the unused holes on the plug are. ie. x00000000x or xx00000000 or
    00000000xx. The plug is clearly visable . Anyone help out? Thanks

    Mine did that [came unplugged from the connector] when I "landed" on a roof that was A frame so it fell off. I was able to reconnect it and it worked. No more problems with that. I was annoyed by the two wires that seem to be hardwired, or at least the connector is hidden inside the camera and the other end inside the drone. Why isn't it more modular? is it that expensive to make it so it can be removed? sounds like it's MOD time...
