    I broke one of my P3A controller antennas off last weekend, and am trying to find out what the connecter is called that attaches to the board inside the controller. I'm not wanting to spend tons on mods, just get it working again. I already have new 2.4ghz antennas, just trying to figure out what the connector is called that attaches to the board so I can order cables. I did a quick search and was unable to find the answer. Thanks

    Not sure about parts, just curious about the way this happened?
    Was your drone in a hardshell case with security strap over top of them antenna? That has been a known cause of breakage.

    It was not in a case, it was lying in the cuddy of my boat while the battery recharged and somehow got broken. If anyone knows what the connector is called, I'd appreciate the info.

    I think I found it. It's called an MMCX connector
