    Sad to say I was filming some cool night time motor officer training and I crashed. It appears that the gimbal took the damage. To me it looks like the motors have popped out or separated to a certain degree:

    There is also a slight bend in the camera arm. Can this be fixed or do I need to send it in? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    And if your interested I'll post the video:

    Way cool video! Sorry about your loss. It may be fixable, the bend in the arm may be a little tough to straighten though. Either way DJI wouldn't cover it under a warranty repair. Here's a good disassembly video that might help:

    Thanks, yeah I'm sick to my stomach about the crash, very stupid mistake on my part! I was able to get the bend somewhat corrected but the gimbal is toast. Put it back on the phantom and it doesn't move and just reports errors. Looks like it's off to dji
