Crashed My Typhoon H

My Typhoon H clipped the top of a tree and came down (with landing gear up) on the camera. While the lens seems OK, the camera housing has a small crack and the cover (where you would thread a filter) won't clip back on. Additionally, one of the propeller arms had the small metal clip that locks it in place fall out, and I can get it back in. Probably needs a new arm.

In any case, the ST16 is fine, there are two after market batteries and basically everything else the came with it. Does anyone know where I should try to sell this damaged Typhoon, and what would be a good and fair asking price?

Thanks!

David

Does the gimbal still work properly and does the camera function properly?

It does not. It will acquire gps, but the camera and gimbal are not being picked up by the ST16. Props all spin, though, and the landing gear finally came down.

No. I found the reset button, but it does nothing. No light comes on on the camera. I think it's toast.

I think taking this thing apart is likely beyond my capabilities. I’m really just wondering what a fair asking price would be if I were to put it on eBay or something. The ST 16 alone has to be worth some thing, right?

I think I may have found the problem. I just don't have the slightest Idea how to fix it! On the plus the two arms that are not working just need a couple of latches that I can get from Vertigo Drones.

Those are certainly problems. Unfortunately, they are not your only problem.
The connector hanging just above the board is the roll motor. The one off to the side is the pitch motor. If these were the only issue, the board would power up and report these as errors. A simple lack of power may have come from the fixable causes mentioned by @elsner above. But when any of the various connectors are ripped out it also becomes likely the board itself is fried. The connectors are a difficult repair with little hope the board will work even if the repair itself is successful.
And it is unlikely the camera took a hit hard enough to break off those connectors without doing some frame bending. The bending may not be easy to see but it will result in various functional problems if the power issue is ever resolved.
