My gimbal has a sticky spot and the cam will not point stright down,  I have had a few minor crashes but nothing damaged.
The last short flight everything was ok but this morning I noticed the gimbal didnt do its normal thing and then the cam was stuck pointing almost down, once i helped it it cam up but there is a sticky point.   any sugestions?
Thanks

Might try some compressed air to blow grit out of the gimble.  Just a thought.

Problem fixed!!!    After further inspection I found the ribbon cable connector to the cam was not in all the way (jarred lose) and was rubbing the housing and most likely the reason the cam would not point straight down.  All fixed!
