After a crash both front landing feet are bent and cracked, thankfully they can just be screwed off, but I can't find replacement feet anywhere.. Does anyone have a source? I don't want to spend a fortune and long delay to get repair by DJI and don't want to buy the whole motor arm assemblies because the arms and motors are fine.

I'm amazed no company has started making third party replacements.  one of my mavic legs in broken so had to glue and gorilla tape it back in place because I couldn't get a simple replacement,

SalvageDrones have sold some official legs, but when I asked about them myself and many others have never gotten a reply from Salvage.

This probably will be Plan B, to glue the feet under tension..

I don't know how badly those feet are damaged, but you could use a combination of glue and heat-shrink tubing.
Be careful though, as the Mavic's antennas are in these feet.

Yes careful not to glue the antenna.   I just used enough glue on the damaged part of the leg and then used the silver coloured gorilla tape cut to shape to hold the leg in place. Works a treat and is very strong.

i have a 3D printer and im a bit curious if it is easy to make replacement legs and just swap out the antenna? or is the antenna fixed inside the eg like laminated inside?

was thinking maybe making a boot  or as my GF calls them "bootsies" for the legs as protective means so that takes the impact not the actual legs

Antenna just had a small amount of soft glue near top, can be scrapped off and antenna lifts out. Also has a black deflector or shield thingy in the leg too.

We don't suggest to repair the drone by yourself because it may avoid the warranty, you can try to contact other recommended repair center which is closest to you if you don't want to send it in official repair center.

Seriously. to unscrew 3 screws and refit a little plastic foot will void the guarantee? DJI needs to recognize that many drone flyers are tech savvy and should sell the complete range of spare parts to private customers. Currently, many vital parts are available over Ebay and DJI is missing out on this revenue stream.

And by the way, there doesn't appear to be a recommended repair center in my country.

Well anyone who could make a good 3D printed replacement would make a killing on eBay selling them. A proper replacement would be better though.

Right. You don't want to avoid the warranty.

I have a couple sets of these. They just slide on over the stock legs and have little "grippers" inside to hold them tight.  The rear gear attaches to the little metal tabs on the bottom. Really helps in longer grass and helps keep dust and debris away from the camera.

You can make them, if your handy enough. I had to make new landing feet, I used quarter inch square hard wood, epoxy and black paint...

I saw these on Aliexpress, but do they work if the stock feet are bent?

Ok, managed to fix the feet for now:

1) unscrew feet
2) hold the flat part in fingers and use pliers to force each foot back into the original angle
3) screw back on
4) use 2-component epoxy glue to fill up the cracks and strengthen the foot
5) let glue set with appropriate weights on the mavic.

Here's a link to a landing leg model I made. Might need a few tweaks to be perfect, but it's pretty solid so far. Hope that helps whoever has a 3D printer at least!

Wow, brilliant, thanks. It works!

In the meantime they're available on Ebay, search for "MAVIC FRONT ARM"
