    OK so I am an idiot and crashed by brand new Inspire pro on the second battery by hitting a branch I did not see at about 15 feet up. To the ground she went. Broke all props of course, the right arm, the gimbal vibration mount and chipped a piece off the back of the camera housing. My camera was my biggest concern since it's the most expensive so I did some testing. Pictures and video from the ground still look good but I have a question. While on the ground the camera will not pitch all the way down to -90, it only pitches down to about -30 or so. Is this normal? I did not check this before the crash. I just hope to God it's normal operation. Thank you.

    Dude you just crashed the sh*t out of your Inspire. You may have damaged some internals that you can't visibly see. The only real way to test the camera is on another bird. You have bent a pin or even bent the gimbal which is restricting it's movement.
