    Alright. Today I charged up my battery on my drone and remote, started remote, connected phone, and started up drone. Drone turns on fine, and the gimbal spins as usual. I get the "no image transmission signal" on my phone and have no picture on the screen, so I pick up the drone to examine the gimbal. Camera falls and points towards the ground as if the drone were off. I try to turn it off and the red light on the battery flashes repeatedly for about 7 seconds. Drone powers off. I try my other battery. Same thing. Repeat a few times. Anybody know what the problem is?

    I don't have a P3S, but it sounds like you have a bad connection between the gimbal and the AC. A plug might have come loose.

    Alright. Not sure what happened but I took the SD card out and tried to start it up and it worked for some reason. Flew it around for a while with no issues. I think it was a software issue but thanks for your help!

    P3P cameras will NOT function with a class 4 SD card in them. They will if you are upgrading firmware, but not for filming/flying.
