If you are trying to be cost-concious it's cheapest to fix what you already own. I don't know of any common repair that exceeds the price of a new Spark.

And your Spark that doesn't fly is only sellable for parts (especially because yours appears highly modified). So that's another reason to just save up and get it fixed.

If you must get a new Spark they are on the DJI Refurbished Store for just $251 ($279 less $28 student discount). So at your budget of $125 per month that takes just 8 weeks to save up.

Those are probably your 2 best options.

DJI Care Refresh was designed to remedy this very situation. I'd strongly recommend it for any future purposes. FYI: any mods from stock could void your coverage

No modifications to spark, only accessories additional,
Iam not understanding you,
To fix my camera and gimbal and replace the video cable I was quoted by dji approved outlet Drone world cape town where I baught my spark, that dji care is not available in africa, and the price was as follows. South African fans to dollar is ± R15 for 1 $dollar.
Camera and gimbal $300 video cable $112 for a dji qualified technical to access the damage $100 and then if I want to have it repaired the a further $50 for repairs, that's excluding postage to and from,
O not forgetting a new battery is $140

That's crazy
Dji is luxury, on a student budget il be without wings for a while.

I have a controller, I have skins, prop guards, floats for water landing and led for night flight, but just can't afford to repair mine,

I bleed every day without sparky iam just standing still

Student.
Still no assistance found, even the dji website specials are not shipped to SA.
My struggle is real TIA
Where iam at, 2500 south African rands saved over 6months
Not enoug for repairs not enough to buy a reverb or used spark,
I no seek assistance if anybody knows a sale in this range or can advise on a budget repair method.

It's like sparky wings won't grow back.
At this saving rate a used spark is still 1year away
Dji pls a used spark worldwide can my 2500 rands not help get spark flying,
