    I was flying my Vision Plus practicing and it hit a tree in my yard. Just nipped the leaves. I fell about six feet and now the camera is flopping about as soon as it is powered on. I can't get any communication between the app and copter, but it still flies fine. Is this the cable problem that everyone is referring to. How can I verify what the problem is?

    Thanks
    Charles

    Check this out... there's a short clip a min in or so with a camera doing the "crazy camera dance". But it sounds like your problem might be something different... the communication thing might indicate a wire has come lose inside.
