    I have a P3P that has no camera. i want to buy a camera. all how-to's online show how to install gimbal ect, but nothing ever shows you how put the wires on that clamp to the camera on. the wires that come out of the body of the copter. they're cut off on mine. I can't find where to buy them either. any help would be amazing!!!! I attached a photo. thank you!!

    Search eBay for dji phantom 3 part 42 and that's the wire set then u needs to open up the drone and change out that cut wire and then u can mount the gimbal mount and then connect your wires and hopefully that's all u need to get u up and running
    Here's a pic show u how it's suppose to look from below. Good luck

    That wire is from the top and routes to the bottom. If u don't wanna do that kinda job there's a guy here on the board named hunch pm him he does great work and has a really good reputation on this board. He's very reasonable

    I have the wires you need. $20 plus shipping. $25 total. If u are near Orlando I would help you put it together. Opening the shell is a *****.

    I ordered off eBay. I'm gonna give a shot. If I was near you I would definitely hit u up. I'm not. I watched a tutorial on opening up. The guy said it was tough. He used a butter knife to pop open each side. I guess the frame kinda snaps in together??

    very tough. Start at the motor ends and put credit cards in the slots as u go around. If u don't it will just snap back together. Take your time.
