After a rough landing tilt over, I can't control snap down, won't record, format, calibrate or any up/down functions on the camera, but the camera still has a live feed. I checked the ribbon cable and reinserted into connections. I taped the camera at a slight downward angle and checked during flight, and it does give a gimbal motor overload. Plenty of suggestions on replacing ribbons or broken gimbals. I would appreciate some ideas or suggestions.

Did you check all cables? Thin black, but also the grey ones.
