I have seen people asking advice or opinions on dealers. Here are a couple of suggestions. If a dealer was able to get ribbon cables (and not all of them were), and charged anywhere from $75.00 to $300.00 for them, who do you think he is watching out for. I make a product which is driving DJI crazy because it is cutting into their sales. See how many dealers would rather sell you that product than a new camera. That would be the dealer looking out for your interests because he can make a lot more money selling you a camera. To date I know of one dealer who has expressed interest in selling such a product. Ask yourself why this is happening. If a dealer has an opportunity to take advantage of me and he does, the next time it happens isn't his fault, it's mine. After a long running battle with DJI over their refusal to sell me a ribbon cable, they relented and told me they were going to give me one free. All I had to pay was $22.00 shipping. That should give you some idea of what the ribbon cables costs.
