    Merry Christmas!
    After flying my new Phantom 3 Professional, I accidently crashed it. The only thing that broke as a result is the attachment from camera to the gimbal. I believe the camera/rest of the gimbal is fine, but can't figure out how to attach it without super gluing it. I did not realize how fragile this part of the drone is, and will definitely order a gimbal case when it is fixed. Any help in how one would fix it would be great!!! Capture.PNG

    You're going to need a new yaw arm and gimbal cable. Super glue isn't going to fix this mishap.

    Ok, that is good to know! If the cable is still intact, do I need to order a new cable as well as the yaw arm, or both?

    If the cable does not appear to be damaged, then it might be fine. I thought it was ripped when I first saw your photo above.

    You can get a yaw arm from ATK Drones or Amazon. DJI does not sell them.

    There's a repair/replacement gimbal kit that consist of plastic that is actually good to use. I think $75?

    Do they sell gimbal "cases" to help protect it from damage?
