    Will the normal roll/yaw arm repair kits fix this? It hit HARD, as you can see.

    It appears to me the gimbal board needs to be inspected. The camera motor needs to be replaced. The arm motor might be ok, need to operate it after other repairs. I just replaced my multi ribbon, which you will have to do also. When I get home I'll send you the link to a site that will make minor repairs on gimbal plus parts for $100. That's where I got the instructions for replacing the ribbon.

    I'm wondering if I'll just be better off getting a new one. I think every piece has a crack in it, except for the camera itself.

    Sell it on eBay and get a new one. I repair these and yours is a total. Don't waste your money

    Where do you recommend getting one from? It's $259 everywhere I've looked.

    Have you looked for a used one?
    I may have one. Or check with "hunch" on here. I am in Ny until the hurricane is over. Should be back. By early next week and I can see what I have

    He said he didn't have one. Hopefully this hurricane dissipates or stays out at sea.

    How are you doing? I will be. back in Florida by Tuesday. I am sure I have one. You could send me yours and I will see if it can be saved reasonably. If not I have a good used one. I would give you something for yours because there is always something of value even just a motor or camera sensor.

    How much do you want for it? The camera is the only thing salvageable on mine. It's in perfect shape still.
