    Too much confidence and little hours of flying. I hit really hard my djiP2V+.
    Man! this copter can take hits. But...
    The gimbal is crazy!!! when I turn it on the gimbal start to move like the loser robot in the zoo on Real steel (Film).
    I opened it (not the cam) and nothing look broke.
    What can I do?
    I live in Hollywood, FL. Any place I can take it to fix it?
    Thanks.

    I did the same thing with mine a while back. Exactly the same result on the gimbal but also tore the cables and broke three props. Had to replace the props, cables and gimbal. Saving the gimbal (h3-2d) in case I want to use the back on my H3-3D.

    If you find a solution for this problem, let me know. I suspect it is serious enough to kiss it goodbye. Mine was also bent a bit.

    I broke two props too. I can't believe it's gone.
    I'll let you know.
