    Anyone know if the P3 4k and P3 Pro cameras and gimbals are interchangeable? Im trying to put a P3 4k cam on a P3 Pro. Not sure if the cams and gimbals are the same.

    Those cameras/gimbals are not compatible/interchangeable. The P3A camera/gimbal is the only other camera/gimbal that's compatible with the P3P.

    I have been wondering about this. Recently breaking a gimbal cable I was having trouble finding a listing for a 4k gimbal cable. Some claim they are all compatible. I took the broken cable out and that part number is the same PO1107.09 if my memory serves me. Not sure about other parts , but the gimbal cable is the same. If I had known parts were so so hard to find , I may have went with another model. I really do suspect the camera is the same. As I said the cable part number is the same.

    It is definitely not the same. The 4K camera has the wifi video downlink electronics incorporated.

    Sorry I don't know a lot about any of these things. Just know I couldn't find a cable listed and a Dji dealer down in Texas didn'the know either. Said they would contact Dji and find out. Meantime I ordered the same one I took off which also fits the Pro and Adv. Could be the boards inside are different but some of physical parts match , no one knows it seems..
