    After a lite crash, the only damage seen is to my gimbal. The drone flies fine but the camera at the roll motor as at about a 45 degree angle.
    1st thing I looked at was the roll motor shaft flat spot in relation to the camera. They are still aligned. The roll motor seems to be fighting to center itself between the motor and the board. What I mean is if I slide the roll motor board off the motor shaft, then to get the motor level I have to set the flat spot on the board sensor to the side at 45 degrees. If I move this flat spot on the sensor to level, then the camera is at a 45 degree. When they are installed together, they are fighting each other and the motor gets very hot.
    Any ideas which is bad? or how to test? The motor is clear of debris and turns fine without hanging up.
