    After flying with my Phantom one morning, I went to use it later that afternoon, but was getting only a yellow flashing light, no green gps signal.
    I'd been hauling the Phantom in a duffel bag, and I guess that's how I disconnected the connector on the compass.
    The little beige one was unsoldered from the board.
    Just posting this to hopefully help prevent this to other fellow Phantom users.
    Called http://multirotorheli.ca/, they sent a replacement for the cost of shipping. :D
    I've gone out to Wallyworld since and got a plastic tub to haul my toy around.
