    After 1 week of fun I crashed into trees and completely severed my camera arm from the unit. I have ordered a new camera & gimbal but would like to know wether I need to reinstall or will it keep the original settings.

    You should not need to reinstall anything if you're only swapping the camera & gimbal.

    Do you still have the smashed camera, I might be interested in it for parts.

    Can you post a picture and let me know what you want for it? Is the lens damaged?

    I would keep it for sure. Given the state of dji customer service, you may have to fix anything that goes wrong, even if it is a warranty situation.
