Hey everyone,

We had a bit of an accident at the office and have crashed the drone. The camera was ripped off severing the flex ribbon and it also looks like the shaft connecting the camera to the gimbal is bent.

Is it possible to replace the shaft? I've done some research and can't seem to find it on its own. I've uploaded a photo to help understand what I'm talking about.

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks,

I don't think it's the shaft that's bent, it appears to me that the gimbal main arm is bent as I think I see a stress fracture/stretching  next to the lower yellow piece closest to the gimbal base plate?

But in answer to your question, no I've never seen the shaft itself being sold, I've only seen the ribbon cable sold on ebay, you might get lucky and find a damaged camera with a good condition gimbal on ebay semi-cheap(ish)?

Good luck, I hope you get it sorted and get your bird back in the air soon

Thanks for your input, BazzaVMC.

You're right, I wasn't entire sure what to call in. Main arm sounds much better. I'll try eBay.
