Rebuilding after a big crash!
Is this is a good example of a faulty Core board video fault.
Camera calibrates fully and operates as normal.

I am at a loss with this now.
I have replaced...

Camera
Gimbal
Gimbal control board
All flat cables
Video cable
Core board

What the hell is causing the red flickering??
Seen via phone feed and also on recordings on sdcard.

Drone flies and operates perfectly.
Could the flight control board be causing it somehow??

This is after replacing all of the above..
You can see it still has the same issue as originally shown in first.

Where did you buy the cables from? You still have the problem, and it's in your video transmission line somewhere.

i replaced the whole camera/gimble/cct board with a new complete unit to rule them out.

I will make your life easy. Take a magnifying glass and look at every single connector in the video transmission line. Start at the camera barrel, go to the gimbal PCB, look at the core ribbon cable from PCB to the core board. You have a bent or loose pin in one of your connectors. That will save you alot of time and money. You are looking for bent or loose pins in the video circuit.

At least give it to someone willing to spend the time/effort instead of the trash :)
Yes but dont underestimate the cathartic feeling of throwing it away, and let the trash company take it while you wave good bye. joking

Personally, throwing it out a 2nd floor window into the dumpster would serve 2 purposes. You get to see it fly one last time, and then the trash guys take it away. Win-win situation. joking again.

Sorry, Im done now.
