    After a crash, the camera on My Vision 2 came loose from the bracket. All else seems fine at this point. I am having trouble finding the parts I would need to repair this. I have the full bracket (which I have found online, but don't need). I just need the screw or pin and whatever else is needed that holds the camera in place and the little white cover. Any help would be appreciated.

    It is a tiny ( pan head ) machine screw, and a white rubber plug

    The plug is not needed ( but you will need THREAD LOCK )

    Take your camera off ( from anti-jello balls, and unplug BOTH CONNECTIONS ( servo plug, and power plug )

    Take it to ace hardware, the screw is approx ( 1/8 inch wide, but don't know EXACT size?,
    And 4mm long )

    You will have to fine one that fits the thread size at hardware store!

    Since you do not have rubber plug, you will need thread lock on screw before instal
    ( tighten screw all the way, then back off 1/4 turn )
    ( this is where rubber plug comes into play )
    It does 3 things
    1) make the phantom look finished ( cosmetically )
    2) keeps dust/dirt out
    3) keeps screw from falling out ( should it come loose )
    Which sounds like what happened to you!
    Thread lock will work just fine!

    As for replacement parts ( try classifieds ( here ) maybe someone has a wrecked phantom vision
    And will help you with parts? )
