    When I turn the aircraft on my gimble just rolls bobbles and shakes harder than I have ever seen it do. Also I have no video at all says not connected but seems everything else works fine. ?maybe a tape loose or wire? I dont know what info someone may need but I am certainly willing to get it to you.
    thank you

    Did you crash? If not, can you think of anything that might have changed since it last worked?

    I had a hard landing yes. Wind caught me and it bounced a few times and then flipped over and stayed there. I did have a crash say a month ago but no adverse effects noted. well none so far.

    Check that this screw is tight:

    If that does not resolve the issue, then try this:

    Both were fine.The ribbon however has come untaped all along the gimble is it safe to check the connections and maybe put a dot iof glue every here and there?
