    You'll need to open up the Phantom and check to see if the GPS cable from the lid is still connected to the mainboard. If that connection looks good the next step is to remove the GPS board in the lid and check to see if the flat square ceramic antenna on the back side of it is cracked (a common side effect of hard crashes)

    Gimbal and camera came off? Very sorry mate but its wrecked and as in $800 wrecked with maybe a 3 month dji repair turnaround. Keep reading this forum and you'll get to understand why. Sorry mate

    Most likely a snapped or sheared gimbal arm
