    Since I crashed, my gimbal stopped being level, I fixed that, but now it's not sending a signal to the Live video screen on my phone, it just says no transmission, also when I turn it on the gimbal calibrates, stays level for a second or two, then collapses. (pic) PLease help

    It could be a bad connection with the ribbon cable, or a damaged ribbon. Try a close inspection of the cable and also look to see that it is aligned at the proper depths in all the connectors. Pull the screws behind the camera to inspect the one inside there.
    Good luck

    In this picture, not taken by me and not the camera, but a look at the ribbon, take note of the alignment line on the ribbon. Each connector is similar to this.

    now its not like that because, the drone might be on, but the gimbal acts like its not on, so no resistance when i try and move the gimbal
