    I just took apart my gimbal to replace a motor and now I'm trying to fit the ribbon cables back in, the black ribbon cable fits in perfect except for the largest one going into the control board, it just won't go in. Also the brown ribbons from the motors won't fit into their sockets either. Please help!

    With ribbon cables there are a style that have a socket that they go into that has a clamping mechanism. The connectors on this style require one to move each side of the connector forward and then the ribbon cables can be attached.
