    You can only replace it with a P3P camera or P3A camera. Other cameras are not compatible. If you decide to go with a P3A camera, you'll need to install the P3A firmware on your Phantom from that point forward.

    The P3P camera can shoot 4K video. If you want the same, then get another P3P camera.

    dependant on how bad of shape it is in . . .you can probably repair the unit if you are not afraid to mess with the tiny screws and decipher some of the instructions. Check the forums and youtube, plenty of resources if thats a step you'd like to take.
