    New to flying - got close to house and got nervous - crashed. It looks like some connectors in the gimbal plate have dislodged. Before I go fussing around I wanted to check and get some feedback as to proper steps. Any advise would be greatly appreciated

    Looks like you have a split connector?

    First there are three connectors. You can replace that entire harness if needed. One of the connections (the one that looks broke) has a locking tab. The other two do not.

    You need to remove the camera to work on that by removing the two pins. You might have to fiddle with the locking one to get it out.

    You will have to see if that connection will continue to hold the pins. You might be able to use some two part epoxy to fix that connector

    Does the camera appear to be OK and the little black ribbon unbroken?

    Thanks rrmccabe for the quick reply. The camera looks to be ok. Black ribbon is unbroken. Not sure where the pins are located you are referring to.

    it looks like one would remove the white rubber vibration mounts to release the entire gimbal and camera to gain access.
