    Does anyone have a crashed V2+ that may have some salvageable spare parts? As I mentioned in an earlier post, I crashed mine into a tree and broke the camera. As it turns out, the only thing I really need to fix it is the ribbon cable that connects the gimbal and camera. Unfortunately they don't seem to sell that part anywhere. This cable is lightly glued on to the gimbal body but it is removable. I have attached a copy of it to this post. If anyone has one and is willing to sell it to me, please let me know! Thanks!

    There is a couple repair shops at the bottom of this under "Repair Shops"
    http://www.phantomhelp.com/
    There is also a link to a video under "Repair" showing how to replace the cable.
    you can also get one and do it yourself but it is an involved process and you really have to be careful or you will damage something else or the new cable. Here is one such place to get parts. http://atkdrones.com/collections/all

    There are companies that sell them. Normally when you crash, that is the main part that is broken.

    When Daves motor gets them, they normally come 2/pack. They advertise in this site.

    If you are mechanically challenged like me, you can send to Hunch. The ribbon is very fragile so you have to be careful when installing it.

    There is another who works on the gimbals & cameras but cant find his name right now.

    Oxnard1379, do you have a link to where you found that cable? Whenever I go to the ATKdrones site, all links seem to be broken and/or don't work.

    do a dns flush on your PC... seems like atk is not accepting connections to their site from some locations or they are moving
    their DNS registrat to another provider.
    try accessing their website on your phone (not connected to your wifi, just via 3G / 4G /LTE / ..) and it comes up.

    run a command on your pc:
    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /renew

    and try accessing their site again :)
