Gearbest - Defective on arrival Taratula X6 drone and FPV camera

I purchased a Tarantula X6 drone and a separate Fpv camera from the gearbest site for the tarantula X6 drone.

On arrival I plugged the camera in and it blew the video socket on the drone. Further inspection found missing a white cord.

Now i have 2 issues

1st the camera is defective

2nd The drone is useless for video and pictures as the camera blew the chip/socket used to plug and control the camera.

I submitted a ticket two times now with both tickets expiring before admin contacted me with return address. I even offered to fit the chip to save on sending the entire drone back.
