    Hit a fence at 25 mph and knocked the camera off. Replaced it and now the gimbal won't get set like it use to. Also gets hot. Any help! Watched all the YouTube videos about this but nothing seems to work!

    This is with the controller off. It does a different variation with the controller on. Any suggestions?

    Thanks. The camera still works fine taking pics and videos. Hate to have to buy a new one if it can be fixed. You know?

    I hear you. It looks like you might have a broken hardware component though.

    @hunch, what do you think about the video above?

    This Is the view from the camera. As you can see the camera still works but has a constant ticking motion. And is not pointing forward.
