    So i have been using my bird without issue until NOW.

    Before this happened i landed it quite hard. Nothing broke but it was definitely a harder than normal landing.

    Today i went to take it out and noticed the video feed was slightly glitchy. So i took it outside and only went up about 40m. Hit record on the video and i started getting white lines and purple flashes, it was freezing up and pixelating. I dont know what ive done.

    So i landed it because i want to resolve this and now when i turn it on it starts up the camera does its axis tests and then sits idle for about 5 seconds then turns off, i get (no video transmission) and GIMBAL DISCONNECTED!

    Theres no physical damage and ive done every calibration, firmware and reset i could think of. Check all nuts and parts. Everything things seems normal.

    Has anyone has this? I dont want to buy another camera:(

    Please check the grey cables on gimbal. Press the two connectors to check if they are seating in position.

    Yea it looks like it could have a slight tear in the insulation. Ive ordered a new cable set #42. Hopefully this fixes it.
