    Went and got a cheap action cam and mounting kit so I can at least shoot some basic video.. No luck yet emailing or calling DJI about repairing my gimbal..

    How do you get the YouTube video to post the way you did? I tried every combination, code, Img, URL, Youtube, and I just get the code?

    You click on the youtube button above where you type, paste the link in, but remove the s on https.

    I finally got through to DJI support. I had seen mentions but not any details in other posts. They don't have parts but expect to have them around the middle of June. They're not issuing RMAs until they have the parts. So it will be a mad rush to get in the front of the line when they get the parts in..

    Here is what I did when my first one was lost.

    Just used the gopro plate that comes holding the gopro in the box and cut it down mounted to old gimbal mount
    worked pretty good minus the live feed. Have to say the video was better though

    That looks good. I may have to add a dampening plate when I get home, I'm in a hotel on the road and working with limited resources..
