    The only place I've seen publish a large parts list (as opposed to just props and batteries) is this European dealer: http://shop.jet-1a.com/index.php?cPath= ... d00cce1066

    On the second page it lists "Vision Cable Pack" but no further details and no stock at the moment. Hopefully that will include what you need, but as to how long to get it.... :?:

    Regarding the aircraft itself have you tried plugging it into the Assistant? Running IMU calibration might hopefully be what is required?

    Dear uncle fester,
    My phantom went crazy and crashed today too. I flew a few meters high and it went out of control. Im now in need of some parts. Im also thinking between fixing it or parting it out. Ifmyou decide to part it out, please let me know. Regarding the video camera cable, I think you could easily assemble another cable if you can find t e right parts in a local electronics shop.

    About the crash, how it happened? In what condition is your phantom?

    Cheers,

    Demian

    2 things, there are two cables connecting the camera to the phantom.

    A small cable between the camera and the drone between the support plates. This is the servo wiring that makes the camera tilt.

    The cable that we were talking befor has 4 wires, and the pin that connects to the camera has 4 sections. The most common pin you will find in the market has 3. You might be missing a wire. If you think its usefull I can take a picture if the cable and ita connection to the board.
