Second test flight - more summersaults :-(

Received my gimbal motors the other day. Had to adjust the pitch arm, as the new Turnigy AX-2206 80T motors have 4x 2mm holes at 12mm distance, the old motors from the Goodluckbuy gimbal had 3x 2mm holes at 11mm distance.

Since the weather is either rainly or stormy i Denmark at the time, I took the opportunity to fly today at 8 m/s. The result: Double forwards summersault and 2 broken rotors. The P2V ejected both battery and gimbal in the process. Did a test without the gimbal, still did a double summersault, so it the Phantom 2 Vision must be faulty. That needs to be resolved, before I can do more test flights.
