I have a "injured" Ronin M (see pic_01). Dismantled it today and found out that the elctrical components seem to be in good condition.
Now I'm cuorious to know if it is possible to get a spare part to replace the broken vertical arm?
Does anyone know if DJI supplies any body parts as spares? Is there anyone who has a a non-functional Ronin M (with this part intact)?
The broken part can be seen on pic_14 and pic_17.

DJI has some spare parts via their online store, but noting as major as that. If you can't get any from a dealer, then you'll most likely need to send it in for service.

Did some engineering and made additional sideplates from a 3 mm aluminium plate. Made 4 pcs M3 holes. Cleaned the surfaces well removing also the black paint. Glued the sideplates on with extra strong two-component Araldite and added the M3 screws.
Sealed the gap between the body parts with a layer of the glue. Finally added a 1,5 mm aluminium plate under the wifi and bluetooth antennas, because there was a piece missing.

When everything had dried, I reassembled the Ronin M, attached a charged battery, turned it on and...

It works!

So; electronics seems to be working and the vertical body is now more rigid than the original part.
Cost: 10€ for the aluminium plate (had to buy 1m long 3 x 40 mm bar) and about 5 hours of dismantling, planning, cutting, sawing, drilling, filing, gluing fitting and assembling.
