Hello first post here.

I have had my MP for about 6 months now. Short story is a few weeks ago I flew into a tree and it smacked the ground pretty hard. After that it still flew and camera working fine.

Next flight thru 5 batteries no problems.
Next flight 4 batteries no problem.
Next flight my camera blanks out mid flight on my second battery. No video, no error messages, and the gimbal wont even dance at startup and no control from the RC. I can only explain it as it had a heart attack mid air.

I don't know if its the ribbon cable, power cable, video cable, or a combination. Do I need a whole new gimbal? What happened? I have tried most of the fixes listed on this page. I just ordered the flex cable to see if it will fix everything. Im hoping I don't need a whole new gimbal.

What you guys think?
 
You probably wont need whole new gimbal. If the flex cable doesnt work, it could be your gimbal board, motor assembly, or core board.
