    I crashed pretty hard and tore my ribbon cable that runs throughout my Zenmuse H4-3D gimbal. I like to tinker around with stuff like this, so tore down the gimbal and straightened up bent parts and I think I can make it work.....IF I can find the ribbon cable. I emailed a couple of gimbal repair shops and they said that I would do best if I can find a wrecked gimbal and try to salvage the ribbon from that.

    So, do you have a wrecked gimbal with an intact ribbon cable? Would appreciate a PM and see if we can work out a payment.

    Thanks!

    Here is a link for that cable on ebay from China.
    Flexible Gimbal Flat Ribbon Cable Flex Cable Part For DJI Phantom 2 H3-3D P2V+
    This is the same cable used in the H4-3D gimbal

    That's very kind of you. I will check back if I don't get lucky.

    I bought an H4-3D on eBay with a partially torn cable for $28. It would power, hard reset and take a firmware update but not move. Did the cable you purchased work?

    That H4-3D cable has even been used on to H3-2D gimbal so there on reason at all why you shouldn't have success using one to repair your gimbal.
