    Question for you guys: after almost two years of flawless flying, I thought it would be really cool to hover my P2V+ outside our 2nd floor living room window at night so I could take a selfie with my family while we decorated our tree last night. Needless to say this was a dumb idea as the copter edged toward the window, eventually hitting it, snapping all the rotors, and crashing 10 feet below. The battery had ejected from the copter, so I lost the video. Everything seems to work, but the gimbal, which simply makes jerking motions up and down,might and left, and won't ever stay still. The message I get on my app is to remove the gimbal clamp, which obviously is not on. Is there anything I can do to fix this, or is it time for the Phantom 3?

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    It's probably something easily repairable if you know how to fix gimbals -- like Hani does.
