Help!
Smoke out from lightbridge!!

Hello guys! Im in real panic! i hope you can help me out on this!
I flew for a very long time with the lightbridge system with no problem... i mean, this was untill i decided to conect my Tarot 2 axys gimbal to the naza v2 for pitch control and sudenly i saw smoke coming out from the lightbridge! it was just for 2 seconds untill i unplug it from the battery! now its not turning on anymore!
The thing is, i always used a 3 cell 1A battery to power ub both lightbridge air unit and my gimbal with no problem. All this stuff happened just beacause i conected the signal cable from the gimbal to the naza ! im really lost over here... im afraid i have lost the unit due to reverse polarity maybe, but im not shure how...
I will really apreciate if you guys came up with something for me now.... I almost sold my body to buy this thing!!!(well... i live in Brazil, so...)
Thanx a lot for your attention, have a nice day!

You let the smoke out. Not meant to be funny but once electrical circuitry smokes, it's usually done. Look up the wiring diagram for both the Lightbridge, the Naza, and the gimbal. I think you'll find a wire was not what you thought it was, or grounded out a hot circuit. Moral, always check schematics before changing anything. Sorry it happened.

not if there was smoke. You let the magic out.
Send it off to be repaired and call it a learning experience.

Damn that sucks, sorry to hear about that. As mentioned always triple check everything. Hopefully it can be repaired and not be costly or a total loss.

Two seconds of smoke is long enough to blow up an electronic component.
Is it working well after this ?
