After several months, I went to the park today for a bit of fun with the Mini and I managed to sent it to a tree. It went down hard and the right front arm is broken. Which is the best place to find spare parts online?

I have bought replacement parts from AliExpress.  Price was cheap but shipping was a bit slow.  I have replaced 3 front arms on MMs (one was mine and 2 for neighbor flyers.  It isn't hard if you have the right tools and a steady hand for soldering.  Of course, a DJI Moderator will come along and tell you that they do NOT recommend DIY repairs and that it could void your warranty.  Good luck with your repairs.

Thank you for your help. I know that I will lose my warranty but in March is one year since I bought the drone. I will try in Aliexpress

I got mine here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/produc ... title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

1 day delivery for me (Prime). Ali Express has the exact same things for half the price and 3-4 weeks delivery. I bought two from them also just as spares.


You have to do a small amount of un-soldering and soldering, just to attach 3 wires. It's easy work. The hardest part is lining up the pivot block. The trick to making that easier is in the following video.

I had already a look at Amazon and they are out of stock in right front arms (gggrrr). But i will keep an eye there as well. Very useful the video. Thank you very much

Really? I just put one in my cart at the link I posted. But they are twice the cost of AliExpress, just faster. Maybe not in GB though.

Indeed. It is available in the US Amazon site but out of stock in the UK one. It is more convenient from Amazon so i will keep an eye on it for a week or so. Otherwise i will order from Aliexpress

Fortunately enough there's not need for Mavic Mini "limbs" to be paired... just a quick soldering job (and basic skill) is necessary.

I might be tempted to epoxy that if not eBay seems reasonable for spares in the UK.
