I seen a couple of them on eBay for a phantom 3 4K. Just keep in mind that a 3 4K camera is not compatible with a phantom 3 professional 4K camera.

Yeah that's true thanks for the head up.i didn't even crash.i left the gimbal guard on a couple times.thats it.then I attempted to try a repair and messed up the flex cable.my locking mech on my flex cable broke is that enough to make your camera not work?? Thanks for the time.

Yes, I do believe that the lock down tab is very important. Without it, it’ll not make good contact with the board. Which board on the camera is the broken tab on?

Well, I was hoping it was a pitch board or a roll board. I haven’t seen one successful repaired reliably. I bought a camera on eBay once that the person tried gluing a piece of plastic on it. It didn’t work!
It needs to be a tight contact connection.
But, it can be attempted.

If you’re talking about the fold-down (hinged) clamp that secures a flat cable to a connector, anybody that repairs drones will have unusable gimbal assembly boards laying around with those connectors. The clamps are delicate but can be removed with care using forceps or flat tweezers and fitted to another connector - no big deal. Done correctly, it is a reliable repair. DON’T use glue on those connectors. Bad idea.

When looking for the clamp, know exactly which connector your messing with - what circuit board it’s on and it’s width in millimeters.

Good luck.

Does anyone on the forum know if it is the same size of fold tabs that are on a P3P gimbal board? If it is, I have a bunch of them. I could send 121666rgy one of them.

Wow that's really nice.im afraid when I opened up the gimbal to check why camera wouldn't pan,when I put it back together the flex cable got pinched.im sure it killed the connection.i have one tab for locking cable to board.but if you could come up with a flex cable.i think those 2 thing are my main problem.also I think I burnt out the motoron the top of the gimbal where camera attaches too under shell,under drone.its supposed to pan left and right,,right.it would barely budge.i cant afford a flex cable.im disabled.think you have one that'll fit??if I dont answer right away it cause I'm gonna lay down my eyes are blurry.show me how to catch a 80lb fish.my legs dont work so good been hit by a car 5 times.im getting surgery soon.thanks buddy for all your help.your one hell of a nice guy.me too pal.ill be on later.ok.im tired from trying to walk.

I’m not clear what exactly your talking about. This is an image of a Phantom 3 4K upper control board (click the link):


Are those the connector clamps you’re looking for? If so, call CloudCity or some other folks doing drone repairs and ask if they have a fubar control board and see if they‘ll sell or give you the clamps. Used, these boards are less than $100, but as I understand it, you just need the connector clamps. Try your luck - ya’ never know......

WOOPS/EDIT: That board is for a Phantom 3 PRO 4K. Lemme do some more homework. Finding P3 4K stuff is tricky. Sorry, man.

Yeah, I was wondering if those connector clamps on the Phantom 3 4K are the same size as the ones on a Phantom 3 Professional? I have quite a few of them. I have a couple of used gimbal ribbon cables too that are still usable, but there again, they are for a Phantom 3 Professional. Don’t know if they are compatible with a phantom 3 4K. If they are the same, I’m more than happy to send them to him.
