That and a broken gimbal ribbon cable has happened to me too after crashing in a tree. I am following to see about the forward sensors. I have a ribbon cable to replace already.

There are two connectors that attach to the gimbal control board at the nose of the drone under the main body cap, right where yours has popped open. They are for the forward vision cameras. Perhaps they dislodged during the crash. I was at low altitude and sideswiped at tree last week which crashed my MP. My anti vibration plate for the gimbal was broken, as well as the camera anti hang hook and the ribbon cable. I tested the camera before disassembly and it was working. After replacing the ribbon cable, and gimbal mounting plate, I now have a perfectly working gimbal but the camera does not appear in my go4 app. Trying to troubleshoot that now :( I think I maybe damaged the camera’s data cable in the process of replacing the ribbon wire. Ugh.
