    Mako 79 my camera is twerking too; my app shows "gimbal motor error"; after a noob crash. What do you recommend as the next step? PV2+ flies, camera image is good, but when I power the drone the camera jerks around. Thanks

    If gimbal cannot be fixed after a crash yet you still have picture is there a way to disable the gimbal from trying to stabilize? I had a crash and bent the gimbal but camera still works. ATM mine keeps trying to stabilize and thinks gimbal guard is on when the problem is it is damaged. I don't want to spend money and replace the gimbal and camera and just want to use it the way it is and since I can still use the camera I thought I would stick the gimbal guard on it to keep camera straight and fly it that way. This will end up being my spare as I have a new P3 on order.
