    Hello, I had a crash this weekend which caused the two gimbal arms to seperate at the motor (please see image). How can I fix this assuming that the camera is OK?

    I'm trying to avoid having to buy a entire camera and gimbal assembly.

    Thanks!!

    i would send it to a repair shop (NOT DJI!) they might just need to replace an arm but if you mess up trying to fix it then you might need to replace the whole thing

    I'm really just interested at this point in doing the work myself. Any idea where I might come up on a gimbal motor?

    Try eBay or a Phantom repair shop.

    I searched eBay and did some Google Fu, but I can't seem to find the motor in particular. The gimbal arms are easy enough to find however. Any idea if the motors are standard parts? Perhaps carried over from the P3?

    DJI does not sell the motors. Any repair shop that processes a lot of Phantoms probably has a ton of these motors laying around.
