    Hey guys,
    I was flying my Phantom 3 for a friends wedding today and I ended hitting a tree which resulted in it falling about 30 ft onto concrete. Aside from being beat up a bit it still flies(though a bit wobbly, most likely due to me leaving on one prop that didn't break but might be damaged) and I am still getting a live video feed from it. However the gimbal is completely limp and does not move at all. I am getting a Gimbal Roll Error and also a Hardware malfunction error. Any ideas on what to do before i send it in? The battery was also ejected from it when it hit the ground and sustained light damage and the button is no longer working correctly. I can post the video just for giggles(and tears).

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Ok, let's see, you crashed from 30 feet, have possible damaged props, hardware errors, and a broken battery, yet you flew again? That bird needs a good going over before flying again. At a minimum, get new props, a new battery, and inspect the gimbal cables.
