    Have you had any crashes. Inspect the ribbon cable on the camera for any scrapes, breaks or fraying. Also check the three plugs from the copter that plug into the gimbal to see if one worked loose. That's where I would start. I suspect the cable plugs if no crashes.

    I've had my camera/gimbal flip out once or twice. I suspected overheating - not least due to one time it happened it was turn on and sitting on the floor for a long time - so it did not get a lot of cooling as it would be when flying.

    The luck was I filmed it happening. Good thing too. Because at first I was going to have to pay for it because the ribbon was ripped. They thought I did it. Until they saw the possessed camera. They replace the ribbon and reset it all. Advice is if is not working after you have all connections pushed in the best you can then send it in and have the warranty and the professionals take care of it.
