    I had an accident yesterday with my Phantom2. A USA Flag knock down my Phantom, now i got a broken 3D Gimbal and broken Gopro Hero3, but i got the shot. Watch the video here.

    My 3D gimbal is gone and needs to be replace.
    My Gopro Hero 3 + Black is still working, just the lens glass broke off.
    See attach picture.
    I need to replace the Gopro Stock lens.
    Any ideas? Comments or suggestions.
    I saw some options but i don't want to spend $100+ for a lens.
    I am looking for a 4mm decent lens for under $100.

    Its quite job taking it apart. There are several utubes on it. Its basically a full tear down. The Hero+ black on the other hand is a piece of cake. If it was me I'd buy from china and pay for dhl, it is buckets cheaper than buying from the above mentioned

    Edit: the hero lens thread is the same as many cctv lenses. You can get a 5.4mm flat field lens for £70 GBP compared to US sources at £200 GBP. That will give you an idea of the price difference.

    Did you tear the flag?
