    I had a mishap in my garage. Crashed into wall/shelf.
    Broke one propellor and camera lens. Discovered couple days later that lens simply unscrews from camera. Dji wants me to send drone in for repairs. All I need is the glass lens or a a new ring with lens if they are not able to separate. Anyone know if I can order the ring from some place?

    That's the average cost for a decent filter these days.

    Thanks. The $24 one is not available here. Canada. So I guess it's the $61 one I get. It's much better than I figured it was gonna cost me. I thought I was going to have to buy whole new camera.

    Still pretty darn expensive for a tiny aluminum ring with glass

    Wish I knew about this option before. I ordered a set of three progressive filters from amazon for $5. Had a $20 gift card for applying for their Visa card.

    3 progressive filters for $5? Sounds... too good to be true. Are they push on or screw on? If the former, they could be adding a bit of weight to the camera making the gimbal to work harder than it was designed. Care to share the link to the filters you ordered?

    a lens is only as good as the glass you put in front of it....
