    IMG_4677.JPG hello, i crashed my drone a while back and the gimbal was absolutely destroyed, obviously lost all visual and all the height,velocity stats. im looking to get the walkera g2d gimbal but im skeptical because i don't know if it will work.
    basically the gimbal connect cable (multi grey cable thing) and the dowlink/uplink (grey and black cables) are ripped and i wanted to know if i could install a new gimbal and get my visual and height, velocit, battery, signal strength, etc because all of it is N/A at the moment. Will a new gimbal function without the gimbal connection cable or grey and black ones?

    You can install a new gimbal, but you'll only be able to use a P3S gimbal/camera. All of those wires will need to be reconnected/replaced.

    thanks, do you know what these cables are exactly called and if it'd even be worth it to replace them

    Here are the parts you need to replace those cables:
    I don't know if it'll be worth it or not. The Antenna is no good for sure.
