    Hi All,

    I've just unboxed my new Phantom 3 Pro, and like others, found that the gimbal clamp was simply rolling around loose in the box. Upon inspection of the gimbal, I've found that one of the wires in the connector nearest the micro USB port is simply hanging loose, as per this picture:

    I'm assuming that this isn't normal, and was wondering if anyone else has experienced this?
    I'm tempted to simply detach the gimbal, and re-insert the wire, but just wanted to check that it should be inserted before I proceed.

    Thanks,

    Andy.

    yes, it should be connected. you can probably do it with a tweezers rather than having to mess around detaching the gimbal. gl

    Thanks for the reply.
    Have now re-inserted the pin, and all is well. :D
