I was looking at my MP in the bright sunshine we’re enjoying, and I think something’s “bent”.
The black mounting plate above the gimbal seems to be at an angle relative to both the MP body and the camera mount. (Yellow lines.)
Can anyone tell me if theirs is like mine, or are all three parallel?
OK. Assuming it is bent somewhere in the region of the red circle, where the gimbal assembly is attached to that black mounting plate … has anyone dismantled their gimbal that far who can tell me …
a) is it easy?
b) if that gimbal to plate attachment is bent, is it likely to be the black (metal?) plate? Is there a part of that plate that goes down into where the gimbal is attached to it? (Thinking there may be and this part, to the main part, of the plate might be where it’s bent?
c) What do I need, tool-wise, to perform this strip-down?
d) If the black mounting plate is bent, and not metal, so possibly won’t bend back. Anyone know where I might be able to get a replacement of just that par?
