    Okay, I indeed did have an OOPS! I managed to get the Phantom into one of my Amateur Radio Antennas and it indeed flipped and went down. Having the antenna a gray colored insulated #12 AWG didn't help a single bit.

    Now the Vision + App squawks about removing the gimbal clamp even when it isn't on. I've hunted and have downloaded a number of videos regarding camera gimbal repairs. I have indeed taken the rear cover off the camera gimbal, and have given it a good shot at re-positioning the shaft to make the camera level, and the sensor board and the actual sensor lined up as the videos have shown.

    Yet, I still get the same squawks from Vision+ App. My sanity is getting a bit stressed. I certainly do NOT want to go off and procure another gimbal/camera mount.

    I will most likely repeat the above mentioned procedure in an attempt to get it as level as a machinist's square will indicate.

    Any ideas, knowledge, and/or information of this camera/mount would be greatly appreciated!
