    Hello everyone,
    My first post - wanted to share with the community and possibly get some input.
    Brand new machine - i got it less than a week ago.
    Firmware - 1.2.6 on both phantom3 and remote
    DJI pilot app - 1.2.0
    Ipad 2 - ios 8.4

    So far , no issues whatsoever.. I had over 20 flights - no crashes or any major incidents.

    Last night, i forgot to remove the gimbal bracket that holds it - turned on phantom, and got a gimbal error showing on screen. I then removed the bracket, but now there was no connection between the phantom and controler (controler has red light, phantom is blinking and beeping )
    I tried turning off/on phantom, controller , ipad , with no luck .. Nothing for about 3 hours of trying.

    Then this morning i decided to give it a shot - and guess what - its back to life ;)

    I have no idea why this happened .. Just wanted to give my input in case someone else runs into something like this.
