Help!
What component is this?

I have killed my DYS 3 axis mini gimbal controller for Gopro.

I have broken off a micro-component from the little piggy-back PCB. Does anybody know what kind of component this is?

Are there other forums or web sites that may be able to help me?

Is it possible to buy this somewhere and get my camera gimbal controller to work again, do you think?

... a lot of questions, I know, but any help I can get is highly welcome!

Sure its a current limiting protection diode but I can't tell you what to replace it with.
And what i would do to work round best if you didn't do that :-)

Thanks for the tip!

The ones on eBay look more like the one I broke off.

I'll probably try one of those - since DYS is not going to help me with supplying a replacement board I have nothing to loose...
