    Hello, i broke the camera of my p3 Advanced.
    I woold like to know if it s better for me to buy a new one for have separate part in case of other problem, or just to buy the camera (very expensive). If i buy a new drone, do you think it s possible to put a cheaper camera juste for fun on my broken p3? If it s possible, can i have the return of video in live on the dji app?

    Sorry for my english

    You really only have two choices. You could buy just the P3A camera/gimbal and replace it. Or, you could buy a new P3A and sell yours for parts.

    Nope. I'm sure someone will figure it out some day though. Those setups tend to be more expensive than just buying an OEM DJI replacement though.

    If the drone still flies, loan it to your son, daughter or a relative to learn to fly. Keep for spare parts. Buy another one.

    How did you break it? If it is the arms and covers, they are really easy to fix. If you broke your electronics... much harder :(
