Left Side Landing Gear Broken

I cracked one of my Platinum Pro Landing gear - the left side only - in a very minor bump against a tree. What’s strange is... I know 5 or 6 other people who also have cracked just the LEFT landing gear on their platinums. Even stranger all the cracks are in the exact same place. I have tried and failed to find a replacement for the platinum’s left leg and had to put an original darker gray one on. While it works... it just looks ridiculous. I’ve tried Amazon, E Bay, Craigs list and even drove 50 miles to a Drone store. When I got there I discovered that even their display Mavic Platinum had the left leg broken and replaced with a dark gray leg from an original Mavic LOL !
I contacted DJI and they said “we don’t have or even sell that part”. On eBay I could buy an entire left arm with the motor but it’s $40 or $50 and I only need the small $5 plastic leg. This has been very frustrating and wished I could find a resolution. Can anyone out there help ?

I would see if @Thunderdrones has any in stock.

Mine also cracked the left side leg after I ended up in a tree. I used a scalpel to make a v groove along the crack as much as possible. I then used cyanoacrelate glue and filling powder to glue it back together. I then trimmed it back down to look better. 20180621_231742.jpg

You could try painting both legs with a contrasting color. It might turn out looking cool!

I just found out that DJI has opened its first ever store in Miami. I’ll be going there to see if they can help me out.

Here’s an idea...
If I sent you mine and $5.00 would you fix it for me ?

I ordered these parts from Amazon to replace both the left and right front landing gear;
EEEkit Landing Gear for Dji Mavic Pro, Left/Right Front/Back Rear Arm Landing Gear for Quadcopters Helicopter Aircraft (Right Front) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C6FHY7N?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf

That’s the same one I ordered. It’s DARK GRAY and NOT platinum colored. See my pics above. It’s the color of an original Mavic Pro. I need the silvery shiny platinum colored one. The leg fits and works perfectly... just looks goofy !
Thanks anyway

Yes, that's correct, it's the Mavic Pro replacement leg, as I was unable to find a MPP version. I just made the decision that it was a more solid choice than a glue job.
