    Decided to just sell the P3P I've been trying to fix for the past few months. I honestly have too much debt and my credit score (according to Credit Karma) gets depressing every time I check on it. So pretty much I can't afford to repair it anymore. I really wanted to love the P3P with all the awesome features compared to my P2.

    TL;DR: Everything works (as far as I know) and flies, but the live video feed never shows (I can still download videos/photos from the P3P though).

    Detailed: What I've done so far (copy and paste from a previous post):
    - Replaced flexible ribbon cable for gimbal [Part 49].
    - Replaced every cable provided by Part 42.
    - Inspected every connection/component for any damages/disconnections.
    - Upgraded/downgraded to every firmware (currently 1.3.20), failing each time (two devices are "not found").
    - It makes that really long beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep after a few cycles of dd-d-d or d-d-d-d.
    - Re-binded controller/craft each time.
    - Upgraded controller to latest firmware.
    - Using a really fast microSD card (PNY 32GB Class10).
    - Played with auto/manual frequencies and enabled/disable hardware decode.
    - Set phone on "Airplane Mode", closed all the apps, plenty of space, reset springboard.
    - Reconnected the iPhone cable to see if it comes on.
    - Tested in a "large open space with little to no Wi-FI".
    Things observed:
    - It flies.
    - "No Signal" in red across the top.
    - No live feed (main problem).
    - Histogram shows changes consistent with lighting.
    - Can take photo/video, saves to card, and download to phone but it cannot be viewed from DJI GO app itself. Tested on varying distances.
    - Gimbal calibrates/moves successfully.
    - IMU calibrates successfully.
    - Compass calibrates successfully.
    Hardware Info:
    - Phantom 3 Professional (Craft and remote was sold separately) sold as-is from a private auction site, it appeared that it suffered from a mild crash, only notable damage was the gimbal arm slightly bent. I'm not sure if there already was a video signal before I started the gimbal repair since the remote control came in after I did the repairs.
    - iPhone 6+ (running iOS 9 Beta 5), also tested on an iPad Mini 2 running iOS 8.
    - Cambond cable (some short apple cable that is MFI certified).
    What you will get (everything not mentioned is not included):
    - P3P Body [Opened twice, some scratches from me trying to pry it open]
    - P3P Gimbal/Camera [Repaired with Bock Hobby 3D printed parts]
    - P3P Charger
    - P3 Battery [about 4 cycles in]
    - P3 Remote
    - P3 Propellers [used twice]
    - P3P Box

    - Serious buyers and reasonable offers only.
    - Set is sold in whole, no part-outs.
    - No returns, test flights, sold as-is and without warranties.
    - I will document that the P3P works as described.
    - I will pay for half of the shipping costs [includes tracking and signature].
    - I will only accept PayPal (I hate counting cash and having to verify legitimacy).
    - Shipping to 48 States only.
    - Local pickups are accepted under my discretion and I reserve the right to refuse local pick-ups.
    - I'm 100% trustable, friendly, and if you're interested in this sale I'll totally work with you. I also have a 100% track record on eBay and have really good shipping supplies.

    If you have any questions/concerns and/or would like to make an offer.. send me a PM and I will get to you as soon as I can!

    Note: Pictures coming soon.. I just wrote this, lol. Thanks!

    Post bump.

    Willing to part out to body+gimbal only. Controller, battery and charger can be sold separately but the body+gimbal needs to go first.

    Sounds like lightbridge is out. Either on the drone or the Controller. Why not send to DJI to fix it?
    When did the problems start?
