    Advanced Gimbal got wet - now beeping

    Hi! Got a P3A from my friend for repair, since he managed to dip the Phantom under water. He shut it down and left it, since he noticed the gimbal was limb.

    Mysterious crash into a tree, followed by tropical thunderstorm

    So I was flying my Phantom up a road on a hill and did something stupid, which was to turn a curve around the mountain and the Phantom got disconnected.

    After a few months without flying (work is busy) I decided to bust out my Phantom 3 pro and started charging the controller. Meanwhile I was thirsty a few hours later and set a fresh glass of blue gatorade precariously above my controller (charging on the floor). Somehow I knocked it over and...
