Hi,

My mavic just started showing "gimbal overload". I went on to replace the gimbal cable as I have done this once before due to a crash - however this time it has not worked, I even redid the procedure and wiped down all the connectors with alcohol swab.

I have attached a video of it turned on here: IMG_4434 - Streamable

Here is the message on the controller: Imgur

Any ideas what the issue is, or what my next steps shoudl be?

The problem is either with your pitch motor, or you bought a bad ribbon cable. You can order a different ribbon cable and try it again.

BTW I wouldnt let the gimbal stay in that 180° position for too long, even for demonstration purposes. You could fry your motor assembly.
