    Good day. The crazy gimbal issue after a crash has been a very well known issue for most of us. I have scoured the internet, saw the halfmoon rod locktite fix (used epoxy for extra strength) but still no go. My unit crashed from 8 feet high when i was trying to land it with a near depleted battery (stalled). The only thing that broke off was the hole assembly but not entirely since we have 1 locked dampener. Scratches around the lens is the only physical damage i can see and the camera still works. If there's any other fix other than adjusting the axis and firmware update eill be much appreciated. But my main question which i think is the most realistic fix for now is how to disable the gimbal movement as a whole, pretty much converting it to a fc40 with hd camera. Thanks!

    Just curious how you know that just from the photo and Bon's post, hunch. That's impressive.
