    Hi.
    Had a crash with my P2V+, everything seems to work fine except the camera. The seems to take unstable movies and pictures.
    The gimbal itself seems to work.

    Here is a short video how it seems:



    Hope you guys can help and give advice :)

    If the gimbal is 100% functional, then I think it could be the camera sensor misaligned..
    Just double check your ribbon cable and see if it hasnt been compromised.

    I suppose you have checked to see that the three camera cables are seated securely. I find they can come loose on rough landings, etc. For me it means a complete loss of camera video. Simply pushing the cables back into their connecting sockets fixes things.

    Hi, had someone looking at it, they said it was the "motherboard" in the gimbal that probably has been damage. They tried to replace it, but it wouldn't work because it was "all connected".

    They said it couldn't be repaired, and had to buy a new phantom.

    Have any of you guys had this kind of problem?
    If yes, is there any way for me not to spend a lot of money on a new gimbal?

    Hi.

    I live in Norway.
    So have to send it in mail :)

    What will it cost to fix it, you think?

    can you post the video of the actual camera when you turn on the phantom and then about 10 seconds into the video after you start the phantom.
    i need to see the whole startup. i may just send you a part so you can replace yourself.
