My MP, production sept '17 showed gimbal issue's after 20 flights....great!
This gimbal thing has been an issue since the beginning of the MP almost 2 years ago!
No change in design done since.

A known issue, gimbal goes crazy at startup, bangs its lens to the chassis resulting in gimbal alarm overheat and possible obstruction warning. Holding the MP to one side durig startup worked for a couple of days, later it didn't anymore.
Gimbal is not obstructed nor warm, never crashed.
Had to make the decission to ship or not to ship back for repair, after reading all issue's with getting back an referb MP for an almost new one....nope, I will not ship.
It's time to roll up the sleeves and DIMyself.
8 Euro's for a flat cable, 2 weeks shipping..time enough to watch HowTo's on YT.

Make sure you have a proper magnifying glass and tools, it can be done.

So happy with the result, especially after a DIY job, to see it all working again...feels great!
My replacement flat-cable also looks to be stronger then the original cable.

I'm a happy flyer again!
