    Careless flying resulted in the gimble mount breaking one of the four arms and pulling loose the camera pigtail and associated black and silver single-strand copper wires.

    I have ordered a new gimble mounting bracket. Has anyone else experienced this situation or have any tips on conducting the repair? All appears in order save for the bracket, pigtail, and two single-strand wires.

    I checked your thread and it looks like still no one has given a solid answer. About to stick a volt meter to it and see if it can be sorted. Pics to follow win, lose, or draw.

    How did you disconnect the two wires (the single grey / black wires) between the body and the gimbal? There seems to be covers over them - do these come off?
