    So I have just returned from an amazing few days of flying my P3P along the beautiful West Australian coastline.... but unfortunately my P3P is missing its camera... Had an unfortunate wipe-out with an unforseen tree branch, which sent the bird crashing to the ground. See attached photo of the camera & gimble.

    The bird is a bit beaten up but she flies ok and seems to do everything as directed. So I reckon it is worth investing in another camera.

    Have seen other posts referring to new cameras available from DJI, Amazon and Ebay, But can anyone point me in the direction of a 2nd hand market for Phantom cameras?

    Cheers

    Thanks Sandy but 350GBP for a good condition 2nd hand camera equates to $720AUD, and I can buy brand new via Amazon & Ebay for $730AUD or direct from DJI for $900AUD, so thanks for replying and thanks for the offer, but not value for money from this side of the world I'm afraid!

    Do you think a gimbal guard would have changed this outcome at all? Sorry for your loss. We are all just a flight away from tragedy, so celebrate every successful flight.

    Your best chance is here. E bay is full of junk for too much money. Hunch is your best bet. He may be able to fix yours although it looks bad.

    If you want to sell your trashed one, I need the base with the main board. Did it survive?
