    Hey guys so my dog attacked my copter while taking off. It was about 3-4 ft off the ground so it wasn't that bad of a crash. Although when I start up and calibrate the phantom, the camera seems to be off centered to where it looks bent or crooked. [​IMG]
    I've tried calibrating it multiple times but it doesn't seem to do the justice. Any help would be great!

    Is the camera just tilted or is the gimbal bent? I cannot tell from the angle of your photo.

    I cannot find it bent anywhere. Just a small scratch on the camera it's self. Other than that there is nothing noticeable to see that it's bent

    Maybe it just needs the roll control shaft and circuit board re aligned behind the 5 cover screws.
