    Does anyone have any experience or advice with swapping the gimbal and camera to after-market GoPro on the Vision 2 + ??? My Vision 2 + literally dropped from the sky at about 60 feet and destroyed the camera and gimbal. Thanks in advance for any recommendations as I don't have the $675.00 to by the OEM version.

    A GoPro setup will probably cost more than replacing your OEM camera and gimbal -- even more so if it can be repaired. This gimbal will allow you to use your GoPro with the DJI Vision app:

    If you don't need a gimbal, you could save a lot of money by mounting a GoPro with this mount.

    Check if the gimbal and camera could be repaired. ...unless it's completely destroyed. There are ribbon cables available and such bit not too much more that I know of

    Have a look in the zenmuse are of the forum there is a post regarding swapping your vision plus gimbal for a zenmuse h3-3d.

    All you need is a zenmuse gimbal and a cable, it's not hot swappable but it serves the purpose.

    I can't copy the link for some reason on my phone the post is in the h3-3d forum
