Submit an online repair request to DJI and send it in. They will be by far the cheapest and they are usually back within a week in my experience. But I live in CA where they are based. Might be only 65$ to repair.

Since this is an international forum it would help if you said where on planet Earth you are. That way you would get suggestions for repair locations that may not be on the other side of the planet From you.

Go to DJI website to find your country DJI authorised service centre than your country DJI service centre will send your damaged X5 gimbal and good to send with the lens together.

Make sure you make it clear that you want parts compatible with legacy firmwares. Or you'll be stuck with all the shortcomings of the latest, greatest firmware. And believe me, there are LOTS.

If it's not too late, call ahead and stipulate that you want your X5 to be repaired with OEM parts only so that it REMAINS compatible with legacy firmwares. Remind them that the "O" stands for ORIGINAL. If they can't provide that, I would have them send it back. It will be interesting to see what they say.

How about a video? Firmware v1.10.xx and all subsequent versions sandbag the video feed. I well documented it in this video. v1.09.xx simply expands the NFZ's. Therefore, v1.08.xx is the sweet spot. Between my partner and I we have 3 Inspire 1's, including the pro, and all 3 are 100% reliable, require no tests to fly, and will fly essentially anywhere we wish, sans within 1 mile of Class B or C airspace.


Please notice the publishing date.

Good luck.
