    Too fast, too confident, too much trees, it's all my fault.
    I use to practice on a field where the grass is high, so the H falled from 2 meters after one of the propeller has touched as small tree. The accident is not so horrible but here is the visual result :

    - 3 propellers broken
    - the gimble was ejected and the superior part (the rail for fastening) is broken.

    So I replaced the propellers, and started the motors. They are all turning (didn't took off at this time)
    Now I don't know if I can fix the broken part of the gimble by myself (I don't know if the gimble is OK either).
    Anybody knows if that piece can be ordered separately ?
    Anybody has an other solution ?

    You will have to order it from Yuneec or wherever you bought your H.

    Sure you can purchase the upper gimbal piece and I bet it will be a plug to the pins, not a solder job! Yuneec will let you know, call em ! Sorry! guess you did not have Obstacle Avoidance ? may have helped avoid it, I do not use it, but I never fly by obstacles 90% of the time!

    No indeed Obstacle Avoidance was off... What a stupid guy I am.
    I'm going to try to make a system with wires by myself just to fix the contatcs and test if the gimgle still work

    Yes at 22km it could help avoid some pitfalls. That rail could be a problem. You may need to send the aircraft in for repairs. The camara looked ok.

    I think the aircraft is OK. I started it, all sensors give me informations. It's really just the gimble

    I have just made a flight without the gimble. I made some heavy moves, I tested stability, everything is OK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    So now, let's deal with the gimble...

    Now I have just tested the gimble, keeping it pluged to the drone with... my hand ! And it's works, So now I can nearly confirmed, only the plastic rail is broken... pfffffff
    Repairing won't cost a lot, but finding that piece seems to be very hard

    Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best Regards"

    Yes, just Gorilla glue a piece of plastic edging onto the 2/3 section that broke off, if you can't find it and fly till you get the new one!

    Is that to say that the metal contact connectors are how the drone communicates with the camera, not the wire? I saw something in another forum for another Yuneec drone saying those metal contacts don't do anything. The gimbal broke off my Typhoon H as well, I'm hoping that it's as easy as replacing the plastic piece that holds the gimbal on...

    Oh wow, happy to find that out. There is a little wire sticking out of the drone about where the gimbal should be, but I don't see anywhere on the gimbal that looks like that wire should connect or go into it. Do you know what that wire is?

    It's a antenna wire, you should have two in different locations
