    Hi there
    I just had a mishap with my P3S when it flew into branches and crashed to the ground. Long story short, the camera and camera mount are now detached from the drone and the wire and mount are severed. I've attached photos below.
    At this point, I've figured out that I need a new yaw arm and ribbon cable. I'd rather not get them through DJI as they're much more expensive. Are these the correct parts that I need? Does anyone know of any cheaper 3rd party parts that I could use as an alternative to the DJI ones?

    I've crashed mine today and found a gimble arm on Amazon very cheap, and I need the camera which the two came to £212. Not to bad. Dji a lot more. There are deals on eBay too. Depends which country you are in.

    From your photo, I can see you need to replace the gimbal yaw arm. You can find the replacement parts you need here.
