    You cannot get the ribbon cable... it is not sold as a separate part at this time...

    Welcome to the sad club of damaged gimbal owners.

    You have to send it in for repair and wait at least 4 weeks.

    The P2V+ is notoriously fragile. DJI shouldn't have put out a hobbyist product that couldn't endure a little rough use.

    This is a common problem and a weak link in an otherwise pretty robust unit. My research supports what others are saying: you can't get the cable and if you did it's not something you can (likely) repair yourself. Call DJI at their Los Angeles number, grab a cup of coffee while you're on hold (it wasn't terribly long for me), get the RMA number and ship it to LA. If you're addicted and have the money buy a backup P2V+ (I had great luck with UAVDirect in Texas on the replacement P2V+.) Another option is to spend $700+ on a new camera unit. Best of luck. It's a bummer.
