A while back I crashed my P3S into a tree and it fell a good 30 feet or so. The whole drone and everything including the camera works fine still except it appears the little arm of the gimbal is bent. this results in slightly shaky footage as well as the WORST part is that the left white landing gear thing is constantly in the video as the camera angle clearly droops to the left. it bothers me so bad so i can't even take videos currently. Is this fixable myself? Is it even worth getting replaced professionaly or should I try myself with a cheap replacement part? Any advice?? Please help

I fixed mine after a crash with a replacement part. The gimbal has to be removed from the bird and taken apart to replace bent or broken arm. There are plenty of guides online how to do this.

I straightened 2 in a vice and they are perfect. It's delicate but in aluminum.
