    Today, while flying, a large street light pole jumped out in front of my phantom 2 without warning. The quad went down pretty hard and there is evidence of a concrete smack on the back of the camera plate. The phantom, the gimbal and the camera all work fine, except that I can only see my osd data but no image though my fat shark goggles. I suspect the smack on the camera plate caused it to turn further than it was meant to and pulled some connection loose inside. Since the camera comes on when I fire up the phantom, there must bel SOME connection between the camera and the gimbal.

    My question is....has anyone tried to disassemble one of these gimbels to try and repair them?

    I'm pretty handy, but if no one has successfully repaired one of these, there is no reason for me to think I will be the first. I don't want to loose other options because I jumped in to quickly.

    I don't know what the warranty is on these..I've had it for less than 90 days, but as I said, it's clear it had a pretty hard fall.

    Second question. Has anybody sent one of these out for repair and succeeded in getting a fix? To DJI? How long did it take?
