Default Phantom 2 Vision+ Gimbal broken and Camera detached

Gimbal started acting crazy, thrashing from side to side and up and down- see video here:

DJI Phantom 2 Vision + Gimbal Problem (0 min 22 sec)


Then the camera literally detached and the ribbon cable broke in the process. This was all while the copter was on the ground thankfully- I would hate for this to be a projectile from hundreds of feet in the air.

My money's on the retainer clip wasn't fully seated and popped off.
Take it back to where you bought it and tell em you want it fixed or replaced under the warranty.

DJI is replacing his unit. Personally I would not have flown with a camera at an angle and would have shut it down when it was going crazy before it ripped the ribbon cable off.
