    I fly a V+ but my friend has just bought a 2nd hand P2 with full FPV set up, he crashed it on his 1st flight and after I had a look at it there seems to be some cables missing.

    From watching a how to install a H3-3D gimbal video on you tube I see there should be a a small ribbon cable that comes off the actual H3-3D, this is missing, it looks like it has been torn off, can someone please tell me this part number so I can try an order a replacement.

    Then that cable attaches to this cable(which is also missing:




    Thanks

    If you mean the 8-pin ribbon cable that connects between the gimbal and the phantom, it's included in the "H3-3D cable pack" many DJI dealers sell.

    If that's not what you're referring to, can you provide a pic of your friend's gimbal?

    He has the 8 pin cable, thats ok

    Shouldn't there be a cable coming of the right hand side of the gimbal where the gopro sits?

    Indeed, that's the flat ribbon cable in the picture in your first post above :)

    One end connects in the back of the gimbal and the other connects to the little usb plug you see included with it.
