    I recently bought a used Phantom 2 Vision, flew/worked great.
    Noted the camera stopped tilting - found out I'm missing the cover and the screw that hold the small hard white plastic insert onto the gear of the camera tilt motor. I tried using a screw from an eyeglass repair kit, but that is not working well, and now I have begun to strip the "teeth" from the plastic insert.
    Does anyone sell/make the plastic insert for the camera mount?
    Anyone here have one to sell?
    Also - if I buy an aftermarket gimbal, this will eliminate the problem. So, any advice re: Rotorpixel vs. Dronexpert.nl vs. Taco/3D Power?
    Thanks!

    I no longer have that drone so I'm not quite sure if I remember what I did it seems to me that I bought a broken camera off of eBay just to get that part.
