First crash banged up the Tarot Gimbal. I'm hoping I can get the parts and repair it. Thoughts?

you can get the plate from 3d robotics store. and now you're in a hobby where you're going to have to learn how to solder
look for 3 pin jst connectors

Not afraid to solder, but I am wondering how those wires pin out? They're not marked or colored.

Also, where is there a good source online for these types of connectors?


I think this is it:

Looks like the pins go straight in so you got a 50/50 chance at it.


Thanks for the link.

50% chance at wiring a $230 device incorrectly, seems risky. There must be a way to determine which way they go?

I switched to the DYS 3 axis gimbal but I still have my Tarot 2D. I could try to take some pictures or video along the length of that cable so you can figure out how they pin out. It will be awhile before I can get to it.

Hi, I just have my IRIS disassembled, so I took short video of cable's connection.

In fact, when you have camera facing to mounting plate, first front cable goes to first front pin on board.

KR, Tomas

Here is how my Tarot 2D is wired.  The pencil in the two images below is touching the same wire.  That should be enough to orient you.

Tomas,  your video is private.  I wasn't able to load it.  Meantime, I posted some images for Richard (above).

Thanks, corrected .)

This is extremely helpful. Thank you

I ordered several of those connectors from digikey.

I could not find that little connector!
