    flying my inspire and a prop came off, my fault... It was about 6ft in the air and nosed into the ground, it bust the gimbal mount plate and ripped the wires out of the front socket lead to gimbal and this resulted in the terminals touching, there was a slight smell from the inspire as I pulled the battery out quickly, now the gimbal has now power and no signal on the app, the inspire still flys with p-gps,p-opti etc... Any ideas? I tried that red reset but it makes the rear light flash a constant yellow.

    Kind regards Simon

    That's one for an RMA back to DJI I am afraid.

    I saw a post/video showing someone replacing the plate, wires and all. Do some searches.

    The red button is not a reset, it is a bind button for the remote!

    Sounds like you burned out the camera gimbal itself or the camera and gimbal.

    Interesting, you could try replacing the connector to the gimbal connection.
