    Been flying my P3P for in the 'land down under' about three months now and just encountered a weird issue. Pre-flight check showed up "gimbal disconnect" and need to "calibrate compass". Nothing I tried would resolve the errors. Gave up and went home thinking there was something seriously wrong with my drone. That night I was again trying to diagnose the issue when I suddenly heard my iPad make that 'ding' sound it makes when charging. Wriggled the cable and lots of 'dings' Arha. Faulty Apple sync cable. After swapping to a new cable, all good again. Thought I'd share the solution if you ever get those symptoms.
