    So my 4 year old promised to be careful when he wanted to hold my "airplane." Approximately 1.5 seconds later I need to replace two of the bands that support the gimbal and epoxy one of the plastic tabs back in place.

    My question is where do I find the bands or can I just get by with some #64 rubber bands and call it a day? Not sure where to get parts and I can only assume DJI won't be a whole lot of help.

    Thanks.

    You believed a 4 year that he would be careful with an airplane?? I'm 31 and even I want to pretend to fly that little thing around the house.

    At this point I doubt there is another way than sending it to DJI for repair.

    Also curious. Had a fall from about 3-4 ft up onto pea gravel. Camera and gimbal work fine, but i have noticed there is a slight tilt to the entire gimbal setup when I look at footage before and after. Did i over-stretch the band holding one corner of the gimbal?
    (note to new users, make sure controller & mavic firmware are BOTH up to date.)
