    This morning i was updating firmware to 1.6, but i never succeeded, downgrading to 1.3 and back up again.
    Thought it was the motherboard, so i bought a new Advanced and moved over the Pro gimbal, but it still doesnt work, so its the camera.
    When attached to my Pro, app says no signal, gimbal works, pictures taken, but cannot be seen in app, only on computer, also there are no live feed.
    Is it the camera board that has been fried, or?
    Cables looks just fine, and everything worked fine the last 81 flights, but suddenly not after fw update today.

    Any clues?
    Fixable?

    If you ever have dead camera symptoms, it's worth trying a different SD card.
    SOmetimes the camera takes a dislike to a particular card.

    Btw, upgrade log says cannot connect to device.
    It was never any problem before fw update today.
    Camera works, but doesnt connect to app/controller, and fw update always fails.
