    1.Back gimbal servo wiggled off during transport. I leveled out the magnet and reattached. Didn't use any glue, should I?

    2.Ribbon Cable Broke - Bought a new one on eBay, ran it through and plugged in accordingly.

    When I turn the Drone on, the front light just above the camera is blinking RED, not orange as usual. The gimbal then begins to shake pretty violently. I tried connecting it to the app, but it says remove gimbal clamp. Any help from here would be great.

    Best is to do a search on you tube under Phantom2 gimbal and check out the videos. Not all fixes are satisfactory. But some do work. 50/50 shot. Good luck.

    I assume you have the first gen of the 3 axis gimbals.
    Essentially, you need to realign the D and make it perfectly parallel to camera. Once done, you need to use locktite 290 on the shaft to prevent the camera popping off the magnetically friction held shaft.
