    Although I am new to the quads I have been into RC for over 30 years. I have never experienced such a rediculous price situation for spare parts like I have with DJI. Amazing

    You are right about that!! The supply chain for this new evolving technology has not caught the demand and I know we will be paying these prices for a while unfortunately.:( Next year, it will be a P3+2 and the cost to retail cycle reloads.

    Looks like there might be an opportunity for an entrepreneur to buy new P3s, disassemble them and sell them for parts. Not surprised if that is happening already.

    They relisted it and someone bought it for more than 800.00 WTH?????? seriously - why would you NOT shell out the extra 400 and just get a whole new bird?

    I'm starting to think I should just buy like 4 Phantom 3's and part them out for a profit....

    I think this seller has the TWO spare parts you need (Yaw arm and ribbon cable)
    Check this page for DYI (P2 but very close to P3)

    And this!

    I'm located in Europe (Greece) so I searched for a seller within Europe (to solve my problem "fast"). I ordered from here and I'm waiting my spare ribbon cable probably on Monday - then following these instructions to repair!
    I also broke the UV filter in front of the camera but it was easy to replace with a 30mm UV (photo camera) filter, for $10.
