I have a broken gimbal on my mavic. Can I fly it without repairing the camera? The gimbal won't move at all. Any suggestions?
 
Awesome I'm planning on fixing it but wanted to make sure I can fly without it. Any suggestions on cheap ways to fix it? I have seen the gimbal mounting plate ideas...
 
That's what I said...

Op are you getting video feed? If youre getting video feed but no gimbal movement it could be your ribbon cable is broken. You can fly it, but you might get a gimbal overload message, and one or more of your gimbal motors or your gimbal board could get fried. If youre going to fly it broken, then at least take out the gimbal and fly it line of site. Nothing connected to get hot or short out.

What he said. Never realised a recommendation would back fire on me.
