    I have bounced my phantom off the trees a couple of time. the screw that goes into the
    small brass gear on the right side of the phantom if you are looking at the front of the camera
    has come out and the small plastic cover has also been lost, any idea on where I can
    purchase replacement parts.

    I don't believe you can buy them yet!
    Unfortunately that happens a lot , and no repair parts!
    Come on DJI ( get it together )

    Ask around here and in classifieds section, maybe someone has a
    Wrecked vision and will part out.

    All else fails, the screw is a standard ( micro servo ) servo arm screw
    You don't need the cover, just use a dab of lock tight on screw, don't crank
    The screw down, just snug it, lock tight will hold it. Now the little servo adaptor,
    Is another story, it increased the size of the servo spline, to fit fc200 gimbal.
    I would take your ( servo, gimbal piece ( where servo hooks to it )) to a hobby shop,
    As they have, and or can order stuff like that!

    Hopefully someone here has a parts one, and can help. My buddy went through this a while
    Ago, hobby shop helped him out. Same thing 3 parts missing ( screw, adaptor, cover )

    Take care, best of luck, Fly safe!

    Hello,
    Ok, I talked to my friend, he told me what he did. First here is a picture of the parts you lost:

    Here is a couple different shots:

    The screw:

    The cover ( 2 pics ):

    Ok now the tough one.
    ( I was wrong it does not change the size, only allows it to mount )
    The adaptor:

    Ok he said
    Don't need cover piece, and a go for the thread lock on the screw ( standard micro or mini servo screw ) he could not remember? But take servo with you!

    Ok the fun part
    He had to buy a SERVO ARM, and modify it like this:
    ( sorry for crude drawing, but you'll get the idea )

    Hope this helps, I had to disassemble my bird for pics, lol

    Take care
