    Is there any fix to this situation or do I need a new gimbal/camera unit? The camera separated from the gimbal in a hard crash, breaking the plastic mount and the ribbons. The quad still flies. I see the ribbons are plugged in, but I'm not sure what's involved in replacing the broken camera to gimbal mounting ring. Also, will a Phantom 3 Advanced gimbal/camera work on a P3Pro body, if I do need a new set up?

    Thanks! I thought it looked fixable and I'm pretty handy. Will order the parts and give it a try.

    Brand new gimbal / cam costs $275. So estimate repair cost before buying anything.

    It's a Pro. I was just curious if an Advanced gimbal/camera would work on a Pro body. I found that 2.7 k would be sufficient for my use. I'm going to try just the roll arm and cables first.

    It's being repaired now so it's not for sale.
