    I crashed my P3S and it broke the camera off completely. Other than the camera damage the drone is still intact. I removed the gimble/camera, clipped the black and grey wires, put it all back together and fired it up with no props to check to see if it would even run and it did. My question is should it fly w/o the camera attached? I have a second drone but I would like to use this one for practicing open field maneuvers. Thanks in advance

    Why not? Pretty much have to fly VLOS, but for practice......makes sense to me.

    Thanks mcphipps, I just wasnt sure if disabling and disconnecting the gimble/camera would have any affect on its ability to fly... appreciate the time and input

    Without the gimbal you won't have any Telemetry.
