    Have a gimbal that won't return the camera to horizontal, replaced the servo and camera hold level, but pitch it back and it wont return to level.

    I"m pretty sure I can press the axle out an back in a new motor.

    Is there a part # or an equivalent replacement?

    TIA

    The only source is from another dead one; either check out Ebay (search "dji broken") or check with one of the guys here who repairs these things (hunch, burlbark, ...).

    I hate parting anything out. I have been so busy and I try to keep this 24 hour turnaround and have only missed it a couple times and its when the gimbals need main boards and I have to buy whole broken gimbals hoping to get lucky and get a good replacement board. The pitch motor shaft cost $50 to replace and the motors run another $40-50 on ebay. I just cant charge someone that much especially when its not a sure thing to fix the problem. I have received and repaired half a dozen other repair shops jobs and I just cant part with parts at this time. I want to try and keep as near a spotless record as I can. I repaired 2 more gimbals tonight and a crashed Vision.

    Hani (Hunch) should still have more parts than me, hit him up with a PM.

    Denny,
    what is all you need now? Just the Pitch motor or do you need a pitch sensor board too?
    did you test the resistance on both, R and P potentiometers?
