    I had a mishap with a tree and ever since then the camera on my Phantom 2 Vision intermittently transmits. The green light is on when I first turn it on but if the plug in the back rotates at all the light turns red and the camera turns off. Has anyone had a similar problem? Any suggests are greatly appreciated!

    A few suggestions:
    1) contact cleaner for the plug - always a good idea,
    2) you can open up the camera (it's quite easy, no worries) and check the socket - I had a bit of a problem with mine the other day and pushing the contact metal bit on the socket towards the inside of the socket seams to have solved this,
    3) double check that the camera plug goes in with a good reliable click - if it does not click it means it's not seated very well (do check the inside of the socket - could be some dirt in there preventing good contact).

    Hope you get it fixed :)

    Cheers!
