Can I order just this missing part?

So, my P4P lost a cover plate of sorts from one if its legs (landing gear). Anyone know if I can order just this small piece of plastic? I have found the landing gear kit for the P4, but I am not sure if it would be the same for the P4P.

Bits for the P4P are fairly hard to source but that little cover plate looks identical to the P4 so if it was possible to buy it separately at least it should be available. If you were close to a dealer they could have a damaged P4 for used parts. There will be 2 pairs of covers, one pair will be a mirror image of the other.

I did try to take off that cover recently to see if my aerial was properly connected (the aerial runs through the legs) but it was too firmly attached so I gave up because I didn't want to damage anything.

Another option would be to wrap a little duct tape around the hole, cheap, easy, waterproof and quite neat if you do it carefully.

Thanks for the info, Quamera.

They're normally not available for purchase, but have you tried contacting Support to see if that can be provided to you?

Thank you. I have not contacted support just yet. I usually get a much faster reply here on the forums than from DJI support, so I posted here first.

The landing gears is probably the first thing you will have to replace if you have even a minor crash, so wouldn't hurt to buy new landing gear and just use the ones that come with them.

That makes a lot of sense! I suppose that's what I'll do.

Why not try an insurance salvage company?  try:https://www.suasnews.com/2016/10/uas-insurance-salvage-next-new-opportunity/

Just a heads up. I did what you recommended. Support replied with a request for purchase info. I sent the info. Support replied, said my request would be forwarded to another person/department. That was 3 or 4 weeks ago. No reply since.

If you have a ticket or case number, I can follow up with it.

It's not a big issue. I'll buy a landing kit off eBay. Just wanted you to know what happened.
