    I had a very mild crash, drone fell from about 10 feet and cracked gimbal mounting plate. I installed new one and when I power up the gimbal goes crazy and gimbal motor overload message appears. I've checked everything I am capable of... I have include a few images if it's helpful, but I am to the point , I just need a good repairman... thank in advance for any help.

    It doesn't look like it but there was a very small amount of sand stuck to the sticky part of ribbon by the shaft at base.

    Guess it could've scratched it?
