    I installed the taco gimbal, and was trying to fine tune it with all the settings I've read on this site. The gimbal started to jerk and then I lost power all together. When I plug in to the micro usb on the gimbal both the camera and gimbal are powering up. If I plug the white cable in to the camera, with phantom powered on I still get no power.... Is there any trouble shoot options I can try or do I just need to get a new main board? Any input is appreciated.

    No responses yet my luck. So I took the main control board out today and removed the two capacitors the tested out good not much more on the main board I can test. the unit is still powering on just no power to the camera cable, which I also tested and seems fine.
