    Hi Guys!
    I'm new here. I have crashed my P2V+ and damaged the gimbal. The camera works fine, but the gimbal no.
    I tried to fix seen posts and videos but didn't work. I send my gimbal to TheNerds.net but they want to replace all the gimbal and camera. And I don't want this.
    Does anyone know anybody who can fix this kind of problem, so I can send the gimbal to them?
    Thanks

    Hi, welcome to the forum.
    Sorry you have damaged your gimbal, you're certainly not the first! Here's a thread that should help.

    Interesting thing is that I've entered this forum a few weeks ago just because of my broken gimbal, and now I've acquired a lot of knowledge in protecting the Gimbal and other Phantom areas. (My new Gimbal I bought from B&H will arrive tomorrow)

    After this, I've bought 3 protectors - 1 for Phantom itself and 2 for Gimbal.
    1. OEM Prop guards. These will avoid you from losing control when hitting something flat, like a wall - it will just bump your Phantom away from it, instead of stopping your propellers and getting the quad to the ground.

    2. Gimbal guard. This one will attach to your landing gear and avoid something from hitting directly the Gimbal when falling. Very useful. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Gimbal-Guard-fo ... 43d5f72598

    3. Phantom Fix. This last one is something you attach to your Gimbal and it avoids the two parts from separating, which generally happens a lot. It can happen when landing a little bit heavily and of course, when falling. http://www.djiphantomfix.com/

    Good luck and take care!
