    Dear all,

    Unfortunately my drone fell in sand. The gimbal has sand in it and is flashing a red light.
    I disassembled the motors and cleaned them with compressed air. They are working fine.
    However I am really worried about the gimbal and red light flashing. The tilt function in the controller doesnt work.

    Many thanks in advance for your help.

    red flashing light is probably because you don't have the microSD card in there
