Hello everybody!
Last Sunday, was no so lucky.
My phantom 4 pro v2.0 was in active track mode following me on running.
When I stop they continue to fly and hit the tree.
Landing gear is already ordered.
My question is what can be broken on the arm of camera?
Can I find the glass of camera or can I use some filters?
Not opened yet, because no time.
Maybe on this week I will open and find what is broken.
Hopefully someone can tell something more, "reading" the pictures.
Everything else is working fine.
Thanks in advance!
Have nice day!

Looks like you'll need to replace the broken yaw motor. Usually the yaw arm gets bent before the yaw motor base is torn away . Whether you replace it yourself or have some one else do it, be sure to save the yaw motor DRUM and put it on the new motor base. The drum is electronically "matched" to the small circuit board on the back of the yaw arm.

Yes. I'm ready for new one. Waiting for it.
I hope the small hole on old base don't be the big problem.
I will see and I pray

The chip in the rim of the drum is OK IF, it is in the back area of the drum's "working" range. In other words, if the chip is not in the front zone where the ribbon cable bracket is located on the front of the drum. I have an old credit card I cut a hole in that I use to fit in between the bottom edge of the drum and the space left over above the 2 tiny black sensors. I use it as a protective shield to keep from chipping the drum magnet when separating the 2 parts. I ruined several good drums before making up this simple tool. I used a hole punch a diameter slightly smaller than the drum, just enough to fit around the motor poles. It's not needed reassembling the 2 parts.

I doubt praying will help here, but a small toolkit certainly will.

Hi everyone!
Sorry for no updates, but the time isn't enough.
Today I do almost everything, but not all.
Changed de yaw motor and almost happy.
Changed the legs and almost happy.
Yaw motor don't work as should. I will fly and see if I have to change it with the original part.

For legs... I broken the Connector from one leg. Seem to be allowed to fly.

Any clue how I can search only this cable?
Thanks

On motherboard of camera/gimbal I "discovered" this Connector.
Can't be used only if is unmounted from chassis.
Any clue for what it is?
