My camera was involved in a salt water crash. I bought a new drone body but my problem is that my camera won't pan up or down. Stays limp in the down position. Wuzzup as they say?

salt water = corrosion. you can just about guarantee that any metal wire in the bird needs to be replaced

I replaced the whole bird except the battery and the camera. I immediately took the battery out and drenched the bird with fresh bottled water. The camera works except for the pitch going limp and not going up and down. I have a new motor ordered for that. I have spent a lot of money on it so far. Almost as much as a standard costs for the whole thing. Also used Deox it on all the boards and motors. I'll just have to tape camera at a set angle until the motor comes in from Hong Cong.
