    Can you post the picture at a higher resolution. It is difficult to see.

    Here is some HD pics, i think its a little transistor or capacitor or something. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I dont want to buy another whole gimbal, I cant even find just the board for sale.

    How did you manage to do that? Look for someone with a smashed phantom selling for parts. Last i heard you need to buy the whole camera to get that board.

    Or find someone who is exceptionally good with a soldering iron. Do you have the component? Its probably rooted but knowing what it was would be helpful so it can be replaced.

    SGT.FLYER. On these pictures I cannot the part or how it is soldered. It has a strange form factor for either a capacitor or a resistor. Maybe a resistor array?
    Can you post a clear picture of the piece that was broken off and of the solder islands where it was mounted?

    Don't think it is repairable. I think u ca get one from Hunch. U will find him on here. Might be best to let him fix it.
