Well, I made a poor decision that resulted in a rotor tip catching a tree branch I ididnt see. What will be, will be. It fell from about 10 feet and impacted the landing gear and motor pretty hard. I dont think the gimbal impacted directly, but the force of the crash ripped it off the rubber mounts and tore the wires out. Can I open up the gimbal to resolder the wires? I dont even recall where the wires went. Ill have to test it with the hand held to see if the motors are damaged in the gimbal. Where can I buy the aircraft/gimbal only? How much? Also, the motor is canted a bit and Ill have to try and straighten the airframe arm to get it level again. How perfect does it have to be not to affect flight? I have hooked it up to GUI and all tests were good. The motor spun with no noises or errors. Heres some pics. How should I go about repairing? Shou;d I take out screws and try to glue/JB Weld/epoxy the arm back together? It looks as if its bent a bit too.Thanks for any help yall. I feel stupid and embarrassed by my bonehead move.
