    Any suggestions for parts? It was a bit of a hard landing, but it's only 3mo. old!

    Thank for the heads up! How about the ribbon cable? No idea how to replace it...

    @hunch might have a better deal/solution and has a good reputation for such work.

    gain,
    let me know if you need help.
    i have yaw arms and cables in stock. if you send the gimbal to me, assuming that only yaw arm and gimbal cable needs replacing
    you're looking at $200 parts and labor.

    btw, i tried Tbocks 3D printed solution... it's a no go, at least for me. little bend or tiny little harder
    landing and the whole thing falls apart.
    great idea but i don't think it's there yet.

    Hi bro, that is a weak point in the gimbal system unfortunately. If its any comfort, i broke my camera gimbal on the 2ND DAY!

    I spent another US540 bucks buying the replacement gimbal and 4K camera because i didn't wanna wait for DJI to repair.

    I guess it would be the roll arm? It connects the yaw arm section to the rest of the forward camera section and has a narrow ring at one end to go around the roll servo.

    don't have a price list as every repair is different, but like mentioned above, new yaw arm and flex cable replacement
    are usually around $200.
    btw what did you do with your crashed gimbal / camera?

    Yes. Mine cracked where the plate connects to the ring.

    I bought a replacement 4k camera and gimbal first. My damaged gimbal and camera I sent it back to dji. If they have spares to just fix the gimbal arm and if the repairs won't cost much, I'll have it fixed and sent back to me. And then sell it as a spare in my local drone enthusiast forum.

    This is the part that got broken
