Sooo yeah, I flew into a tree and my favourite part of my copter fell off, the camera.

Almost impossible to find a replacement that doesn't cost as much as a new phantom 3 standard (very strange).

Luckily, the fun still continues, and it still flies well, though when I turn it on I hear a motor in the gimbal (the top motor closest to the base of the body) trying to engage (I think), it pulses like an alarm and a little red light flashes on the camera base.

Is this okay to still fly like this? Am I going to burn something out if I do so?

SHould I be disabling, or disconnecting something since the camera is no longer part of the unit?

ps...any thoughs on where I can get a new gimbal arm with ring magnet? I've found many places that sell the ribbon cable, and many that sell the parts that I need for the p3 (apparently not compatible), but nothing for the p2V+
