I broke one on a x5s and it was around $100 if I remember correctly.
Thank you! That sounds a lot better than buying a replacement. I was leary of sending it out and paying for shipping both ways to hear an exhorbatant quote and end up buying one on eBay.

I appreciate the info. Thanks again!

That was (is) the Achilles Heel of the X5/X5R. I had one break after a very mild collision with a tree branch.
I sure hope they learned from this and designed the X5S better.

I ended up sending mine in and the total was $323. $195 of that was labor. They must have sent via the “slow boat from China” back from California, but I did get it back good as new with no issues.

Hi

I had an unfortunate accident.
The X5 RAW camera is broken.
I'm thinking of sending dji service, what are your recommendations?

how much will it cost me?
