    I crashed my P3. the ribbon and gimbal arm broke fixed it with new arm and new ribbon. now the camera and gimbal do not move. when turning the machine on it dose not do anything. any help will be awesome. do I need to send it off?

    A gimble moves freely on its own, if it doesn't move then you will need to find out what is bent.

    @Reed L the gimbal has power. the camera nor gimbal move on start up like it should. the gimbal deck has power. the led light flashes. but nothing below that works I just replaced the arm and ribbon am I missing something?

    So they do move without power then :) If they didn't move without power to them then that would tell you that it is bound up

    If one of the motors are bound up. The others would still work right?
