    I crashed my phantom in a tree the other day. The camera popped out and broke a metal ring on the gimble and the black ribbon cable. I need to either order new parts or have it sent in for repair. I think this is a relatively easy fix. Any recommendations?

    I did my own repair on my p2+ pretty much the same. Look up gimbal repair on YouTube. Got my ribbon cable from eBay 50 bucks. I already bought one for my p3. They are selling 3d printed parts for the p3 gimbal as well. If you send it to dji your out a drone for at least 2 months.

    P.S.
    Buy a gimbal saver from killer RC well worth it

    I saw a really nice and thorough drone repair video on youtube. However, there was no link or description as to where to buy the 3d printed polymer parts.
