    Hi, I crashed my P3S and as a result the camera came off and the two wires connecting the gimble also came off. I was able to reattach everything and seemingly everything was working fine, aircraft was connecting camera was working perfectly, but now every-time i get to around 40 meters, the image begins to break up and it says Aircraft disconnected in the app, I still have full RC control. However im scared to fly it at the minute. Anyone have any idea whats broken? is it one of the two wires that i reconnected? Before crash i was achieving nearly 150 metres with a constant image.

    What exactly was broken? How did you attempt to fix them?

    so nothing appeared broken, only one of the two wires i mentioned looked slightly damaged, I simply reconnected the both wires. Could the damage on one of the wires be causing this?

    How did you reconnect them?

    Yes, it's a common problem that can limit the range.

    I just clicked them back into their place. Could you recommend the best course of action?
