    I had a crash with a P3 Adv that snapped the yaw bracket where it attaches to the yaw motor shaft. I disassembled everything and didn't see any damage. I 3D printed another bracket and put everything back together but now i have the chicken dance with the camera.

    Is this repairable?

    I think u put the camera back wrong. It may be off by 180 degrees. I have seen this before. We call it the hula dance. The camera goes on the flat part of the shaft but will go either way. The flat cover of the camera should be on with the flat part of the shaft

    Maybe not with that much overload. I am not sure as to what you should do. You might want to send it to hunch or myself for repair. Maybe if you contacted him and showed him the video.

    we just figured out the issue, i looked at his video and it looked to me as the roll sensor board potentiometer. he opened it up per suggestion and sure enough,
    it had a crack right in the middle of it ;)
