    I was flying today and had camera tilt control issues. from the looks of it the servo gear is stripped, i can move the camera very freely up and down. anyone know of any ways to fix this with either a replacement gear or servo?

    Thanks in advance

    If it's still under warranty you may want to send it off for repair. I just bought a replacement camera which came with the servo but that was expensive and only because I lost my first one.

    did you check to see if the screw came out of the control horn? seems suprising that the gears would strip given that its a metal gear servo.

    Update, the camera servo works fine in flight, i can control tilt as normal. I think what freaked me out was i happened to nudge the camera while moving the phantom from one spot to another and it kind of moved freely with a notchiness to it. But, like i said it flies fine. Do i have to remove something to find that screw and check it, i dont see it anywhere

    Use a paperclip or the tip of a pen knife to pop off the small white rubber cover on the the camera 'horn' or arm, the screw is under that.
