    My CGO3+ emits 2 long one short beep codes. Camera shows a picture. I found an open red wire and replaced the slip ring which did not help My Typhoon has never been crashed. Any ideas? I was an electronic tech. for 40 years and can handle replacing most anything on the camera. If it's a part, where is the best place to find it?
    Thanks,
    Truman

    The beep codes indicate an issue with the camera's pitch encoder. There are a couple of possibilities. Which of the possibilities is the more likely depends on the recent history of the camera:

    1.) If the camera has been in a crash:
    a.) Look for damaged wires. Especially at the joint of the vertical and horizontal arms.
    b.) Look for a damaged connector where the wires connect to the gimbal board.
    c.) Look for loose wires at the encoder end.

    2.) If the camera has been in storage for most of the time between the last time it worked and the first time the codes appeared, the problem is likely a degraded pitch encoder magnet. Refer to this document:

    The magnets are hard to find. (They were not provided as a listed part.) They are most commonly obtained from scrap motors or by replacing the entire motor. Let us know if you need help locating a pitch encoder magnet.
