    Well after crashing my p3s and replacing the 2.4ghz antennas and flex cable and ribbon cable it did not fix my dancing gimble problem.

    So i just ordered an advanced looking for ideas on what to do now. Try to fix gimble with another broken gimble? Part out? Buy a used gimble/camera?

    Also what should i sell it for in the condition its in?

    Thanks

    Also i should add if you are in canada order from multirotorheli amazing service and amazing prices fast and free shipping.

    Ya and the weird thing was that before i replaced the gimbal flex cable it would sometimes work good enough to calibrate but also sometimes i would have no imu settings. So i thought for sure a new flex cable would fix the problem but nope.

    Sometimes i also couldn't change from photo to video mode or auto/manual camera setting. But everything works now other then the camera going crazy
