    Drone crash

    Hello all! 2 days ago I crashed my drone. Long story. Anyways I can’t find the dang thing.

    Crashed my Mini 2 into a Tree and need help on which parts to get in order to repair it.

    Hello, I crashed my dji mini 2 today, via flying into a palm tree and not knowing what was above me, judging on based by the damage it looks like I only I need shell repair kit, considering that the retractable arm are intact, and NO I do not have DJI care for this Drone.

    Gimbal Stuck Faced Down

    I crashed my Mini 2 and snapped a piece in the gimbal housing. I disassembled, added glue, set it over night and it was intact. After reassembling properly, at start up, after the gimbal does it’s checks, it’s almost as though the camera gives up and ends up facing downwards. Any ideas?
