    I am looking for a replacement cable for my Inspire X3 camera, can any one help?
    It seems to be impossible to locate, I see ones available for Phantoms but none for the Inspire. Not keen sending it away for 6 plus weeks.

    Turnaround time wasn't bad when I sent my inspire in a month ago. I've heard those are impossible to find as well. If you part it out let me know

    HI
    Sorry to jump on this thread but calde315 , was your x3 going in for repair by DJI ,if so can you give an approx cost for the repair (was your arm broke as well as the ribbon cable?)

    Thanks

    I too am in need of the main ribbon cable for an X3 and haven't experienced success in locating one. Generally it seems when the gimble is damaged the cable is the first thing to suffer damage along with the magnesium components. Even though both my birds have X5's I still have a complete X3 except for the cable.

    Mine went in for camera related issues. I had other problems but it took under a week to get there MN-> CA and then they figured out the problem within a week or so as well.

    Likely 3 weeks or so if in the US

    I ended up sending to dji, it was a very speedy turn around, 2 weeks. Cost about $120aud to fix, the camera arm had snapped as well .
