accidentally posted this in classifieds but...

Ok, so basically, my p3a was flung across the parking lot accidentally. I went to grab it and it looked fine except the camera had come off . I plugged the battery in and tried to see if it would fly.. IT did ... kind of... but it was uncontrollable pretty much and wouldnt land so i had to do a CSC from about 8 feet above the ground and broke 1 of the landing gear legs. the next day i realized that one of the blades was broken, replaced it and it flies just fine.

All this to ask about my camera, I have attached the pics of the camera. Is this an easy fix? or should I just replace the whole camera / gimbal assembly?

You will find the cost of a camera assembly quite expensive.
Depending where you are you might find the cost of repair a much cheaper option.

I find a good rule of thumb is if the cost of repair is greater then 50% of the cost of a new unit then it's best to buy a new one and sell the old one for parts.
