    At the least, you need a yaw arm and gimbal ribbon cable.

    I figure I can fix it but called one vendor and they said I would have to buy the entire set up - any suggestions on who to call for just certain parts - I think the camera and gamble may still work - I would rather spend a little money to attempt to fix and if that does not work then replace the entire thing

    thanks, saved some $$ w/ TACO RC - now if I can get the puppy apart and back together (looks simple but delicate) and nothing explodes when done we'll be back in business - note to self - trees bad
