    For whatever reason, my ribbon cable keeps coming unstuck from certain places on the gimbal. It is a genuine DJI ribbon that I installed. I must have stuck and unstuck it too many times trying to get it placed just right and wore off the sticky parts. Sometimes the camera brushes against it when I power up.

    What is a good adhesive to use? I don't want to use just any glue that could chemically attack the ribbon cable and possibly damage the traces.

    Thanks,

    3M makes double-sided adhesives used in phone assembly. It has paper backing on both sides. Cut to fit, peel and apply.
