    Hi,

    I recently found that my P3P gimbal is broken, this is because the motherboard on the gimbal is broken. Does anyone have a broken/crashed P3P gimbal for sale?

    Thank you

    OK I'll bite:

    If you have a broken gimbal why do you want another one?
    There is no motherboard on the gimbal.

    I understand you are confused. The gimbal controller board (on the top part of the gimbal) where the ribbon cables are going into. Are damaged. I need a new controller board. And if a P3P users gimbal is broken apart. I could buy the top section.
    Kind regards.

    The front protector lens cap plastic/glass on the Camera is broken but the camera main lens looks OK and free from scratches- the pictures here probable show dust from p3p camera or camera taking the photos .
    The Gimbal Fan has a bit missing from the plastic surround but the fan spins freely when blown.
    The ribbon cable looks OK but I cant be sure.
    The back swing arm just needs bent back to alignment by the looks of it
    Any questions - im happy to answer
    Make me an offer for the parts and I will consider

    Thank you for the photo's Gazzer. I can see that the gimbal isn't so fixable anymore. I hope you can sell me the top part from the gimbal only (where the motherboard and the fan are placed). Because my motherboard of the gimbal is broken.

    Sorry it took as few days. Here are pics of a camera that my son clipped a small tree branch and it came down 40 feet at a good 15 to 20 mph. Luckily I had a graphite brace and it landed feet first. I get a gimble motor overheated message . It damaged the gimble knuckle/ joint behind the camera.

    t
    Apilot,
    Do you still have the controller board and if so, can you verify it is from a P3P and that it is 100% operational? Do you have a price in mind?

    It is the complete camera. It has a messed up gamble motor/ joint. It did have a picture but said motor malfunction.
