    P4P interchangeable parts

    I repair drones on the side for fun and a bit of money. I was thinking it might be a good idea to buy a virgin drone from DJI to swap parts with a broken drone to diagnose issues in the broken drone. I would then buy the needed part online after I figure out which one is malfunctioning. So...

    Hi guys, Not sure if anyone touched / shared info of this already therefore making new post. Two main questions: 1. Is there a place you can find some DJI drone servicing prices?

    is it possible to put yaw/roll/pitch motors into a gimbal assembly that are not native to the assembly? I believe the gimbal motors all get calibrated as one unit at the factory and replacing motors can throw this off. can anyone confirm? I was able to put a non native pitch motor onto a gimbal...

    Accelerometer cable replacement?

    So I crashed my drone, and after replacing the broken propellers and vibration board, I was getting an accelerometer error. It was reading 16 G's so after googling, I determined this was the right fix: Fix for "NO MC DATA- ACCELEROMETER FAILED" if caused by impact. While lifting the ribbon...

    Ideas for a Phantom 4 wreck

    I picked up a wrecked P4 that had been flown into a cliff. It still flies well, but as the gimbal is totally messed up and the camera gone = no live view.

    Help! DJI Repair Quote - Am I being robbed?

    I purchased the Phantom 4 Pro on 10 November 2017. The very first time I calibrated the aircraft I noticed that the gimbal was trying to move in the opposite direction and making a strange sound. I thought this was normal because I had only just unpacked it from the box. I have only flown the...
