    My Typhoon H has a CGO3+ camera. It devolved a problem. Upon drone startup it activates, shakes, rattles, quits/goes limp and produces a long constant beep. I have tried to re calibrate the gimble but it begins to calibrate and the same thing happens. I’ve removed the camera housing and I do not see any pinched or broken wires. The firmware is current. Any suggestions would be most helpful.

    Did anything happen to the camera between the last time it worked correctly, and the first time it did not? Especially things like a crash, firmware changes or disassembly to any degree.

    Hello! No crash occurred. No mishandling either. What I did notice was the camera pan beginning to drift on its own. Meaning it would slowly start panning and would not stop unless you corrected with the pan control in the opposite direction. But it would begin panning in the opposite direction. Then upon a flight the camera gimbal just went lifeless/limp but the video still worked. Now upon Typhoon startup/self check, it initiates and goes lifeless with a constant beep. Same if I try to calibrate gimbal. Here is my current firmware.

    It might be worth unplugging the Yaw motor, and see if the camera will otherwise initialize correctly. See the drawing below to identify the Yaw Motor plug. ("C" on the image near upper left)

    Is this board you referenced in the camera housing or in the gimbal arm area above the camera? Thank you.

    It's in the gimbal arm area above the camera. The round cap snaps off, but you have to work it carefully above the wires. The camera itself gets in the way, and makes it a little tricky.

    I will throw my 2 cents in..I had a problem with my camera, it would not pan up and down, no crash, no firmware up date and no rough handling, what I did find was a very small wire in the base of the camera gimbal, inside had come loose and it takes a very small soldering iron to solder it back in place .

    I successfully removed the Yaw connector. Rebooted drone and the gimbal still rattled then powered down with nothing but long beeps. No short beeps but continuous series of long beeps. (which it did prior to removing connector). I also tried removing pitch and roll connectors individually, same result. I have taken off most off the gimbal covers to inspect for loose/broken wires. Could not find any. It also appears my gimbal firmware that came from the factory is Version 1.27. The version found on the Yuneec website available for download is V1.25. This would appear my installed version is newer. Should I try to install the older V1.25 available from Yuneec? I appreciate your assistance.

    Is it making four long beeps, a pause, then repeats over and over?

    Yes 4 long beeps. No short ones. I can't really tell when it stops and then repeats. They are just spaced out approx 5 seconds between. The camera has an image on the screen and the green light is on.

    Чи можна підключити камеру GGO3+ до Q500 4k?

    Is it possible to connect GGO3+ camera to Q500 4k?

    No. It can be made partly compatible, but will not be a practical asset for even general use.
    1.) Some CGo3+ top mounts have small tabs to prevent the camera from sliding on a Q500. The tabs can be removed, or the Q500 mount can be modified.
    2.) The CGo3+ camera is too tall. The landing gear will need to be made taller to avoid the camera resting on the ground.
    3.) The CGo3+ video signal is not compatible with the ST10+ screen. The Q500 can be bound to an ST16 controller to obtain good on screen video.
    4.) The Q500 series camera tilt (Pitch) code is not compatible with the CG03+ gimbal. There is no known firmware upgrade or modification to change the code. This applies regardless of whether the Q500 is flown with an ST10 series controller or an ST16 controller. The code is a permissive between the drone mainboard and the camera gimbal board.
    5.) The CGo3+ manual Pan(Camera Yaw) will not work at all. It is both firmware and hardware incompatible with the Q500 series.

    Нет. Его можно сделать частично совместимым, но он не будет практичным активом даже для общего использования.
    1.) Некоторые верхние крепления CGo3+ имеют небольшие выступы для предотвращения скольжения камеры на Q500. Эти выступы можно удалить или модифицировать крепление Q500.
    2.) Камера CGo3+ слишком высокая. Шасси необходимо сделать выше, чтобы камера не упиралась в землю.
    3.) Видеосигнал CGo3+ не совместим с экраном ST10+. Q500 может быть привязан к контроллеру ST16 для получения хорошего видео на экране.
    4.) Код наклона (Pitch) камеры серии Q500 не совместим с карданом CG03+. Не существует известного обновления прошивки или модификации для изменения кода. Это касается независимо от того, летает ли камера Q500 с контроллером серии ST10 или контроллером ST16. Код является разрешающим между основной платой дрона и платой кардана камеры.
    5.) CGo3+ ручной Pan (Camera Yaw) не будет работать вообще. Это как прошивка, так и аппаратная несовместимость с серией Q500.

    Дрон впав з висоти 60 метрів (пробував стабілізувати на трьох моторах) тому що було таке фото, пошкоджена плата підвіски STM 32

    Google Translation:
    The drone fell from a height of 60 meters (tried to stabilize on three motors) because there was such a photo, the suspension board STM 32 was damaged

    @ Vit,
    The post did not translate into English well.
    Is the number on the remaining mosfet "F9310"?
    Переклад англійською не спрацював. Чи можете ви прочитати номер на останньому MOSFET, щоб побачити, чи є на ньому «F9310»?
