    Flew my P2 into a tree, prop guards saved all but the zenmuse h3-3d gimble. Bent the arm coming from the attaching platform to the gimble itself to a 30degree angle. It looks as though it could be straightened though if I tried it with a couple pair O vise grips I'm sure I would do more damage and probably kill it. Does anyone know of any reliable repair shops, hopefully in the U. S. that handles this sort of thing, even replacing the arm would be better then loosing the gimble. Thanks in advance,
    Terry

    Terry, did you ever find a repair solution?
    I've crashed twice with resulting bent gimbal. The bend was at the top of the vertical axis arm. It made the horizon about 10 deg. off. I removed the GoPro and unmounted the gimbal. I grabbed the mounting plate top end with one hand and the lower end with the other and used some muscle to bend it back. This worked TWICE. But I know it's a crap shoot and might not work again. Who knows which arm will be bent? I'm thinking I need to have a spare gimbal on hand for important shoots.
