    Fairly hard fall, pilot error... I think. Looks like the camera and gimbal took a severe hit and broke apart. Also one prop chipped but otherwise she looks OK. Anyway I'm hoping for some advice on how to proceed.
    Send it to DJI to repair, or order new camera/gimbal combo $539 and replace it myself, or... ?
    Pics attached.
    Thanks.

    I think you can fix it and save a few bucks--- but what do I know?? except I would try it myself if it were my P3. :):) Let us know how it turns out.

    let me know if you need help. i fixed over 500 gimbals in past 12 months and looking at your pictures you're looking at less than half the price of a new gimbal to get it fixed.

    I had the same problem/crash result and ordered a new camera. Does anybody know where I could find camera replacement instructions for the P3P please?
