    Hi all, new to the forum and to the hobby.
    I have crashed my Phantom 3 pro into a tree and the base of the gimbal (the one screwed to the body) was broken off. None of the parts of the camera or gimbal got separated or show external damage.
    I have ordered the replacement base, cables (just in case) , and props. The quad still flies.
    What are the chances of the gimbal be damaged? Should I send it in for repair?

    Cheers and thanks,
    A.

    Welcome
    It can still fly, it is good. Can you get a video in the app?
    If it has not separated, the chance are good.
    You can also post some pictures, that could help for evaluation by experts.

    Some more info are here DJI Phantom Accessories & Tips - Phantom Help, section REPAIR.
