Hi. First time here/fisrt post.
Bought a used Mini 2 for  bargain price expecting there would be something wrong with it and there  was. Flew fine but the camera was acting weird/shaky. Not knowing  anything about drones, I took it apart and discovered a large crack on  the gimbal mount that I managed to repair with glue and epoxy. Camera  has been steady and fine ever since except for one minor issue: "Gimbal  stuck" usually pops up after powering up. I can get around this if I  power up while holding it nose down. If I power up when it's level, the  left/right movement binds ever so slightly during its test cycle. It  seems that the back edge of the cylindrical gimbal housing contacts the  drone frame. When I look at it when it's apart, I cannot understand  why.

Today I had my first 'crash'; lesson learned about  using the camera to navigate tree branches. Didn't seem to suffer much  damage...nothing to the props and only the battery hatch hinge needed to  be reseated. But I soon noticed the gimble was stuck but this time  really stuck, like, no movement even when I used a finger. I had to pull  the gimble out a little to get it from contact on the frame in order to  get left/right movement. But, as soon as I let go, it was touching the  frame again.

Took it home and took it apart and to my  surprise, somehow there was a little more of a gap, but still not  enough. So, before I put it back together I want to understand how the  gimble seats properly. I've included three pics to help illustrate my  issue.

Thanks for your replies.

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I was hoping there may be and obvious or easy fix for this issue assuming it must not be isolated. Going the route of support through the company is often time consuming and costly and I was hoping to avoid that.
