Hi everyone,

I just signed up in your forum because I find it nice and I just bought my Spark 2 days ago.
I'm facing a small issue with my Spark :
After 5-6 nice flights, I once got a quite "rough" landing / small crash due to a gust of wind.

I took it again and was quite reassured it wasn't broken, but the gimbal was moving up and down alone (like this video :
)
I was able to fly it normally (no problem to go up, down, left, right, and to stay stationnary). But the problem is that now the gimbal is not able to move anymore and on the Dji GO app I get a message "Gimbal error".
As you can see on the attached picture, there is no mark on the gimbal..

Any thoughts on what to do ?

Thanks

Probably too late for you unfortunate gimbal, that's why I bought a spark accessorie called a ground clearance kit.

Happened to me after slamming into a wall and dropping 3 feet to hard floor. Local DJI store fixed it for $30 dollars.
A landing gear wouldn’t have helped in a crash. It’s only somewhat useful in taking off from grass. I say ‘somewhat’ because it adds weight and reduces aerodynamics and could be mitigated by launching from your palm or case.
