    Hello peeps

    I bought a broken gimbal were the camera has detached from.
    What i want to do is making something out of it just for FPV with a fixed original camera so the working one can be used when filming/pictures when needed.
    As we all know the gimbal/camera is the weakest link in the bird.
    So i received it today but it lacks the broken ribbon.
    As i can see it on the good camera on the bird it only uses some contacts on the connector, but i am not going to dismantle a good working one to determine what and were.
    So is there anyone that knows what connection goes were from camera to the PCB board or is there someone with a broken ribbon cable that doesn't need it anymore ?

    I would think that the two largest connections (one by the camera and one at the top) would need to be intact between those points. I have heard people have had a broken cable but could still see the camera. The "weakest link" seems to get broken right below the part of the cable that goes to the camera.
