    So my P3 recently took a tumble, most of which i've replaced, not too bad damage, BUT I need to re-synch my controller to the aircraft and MY LINK BUTTON IS GONE. Does anyone know of any place I could get a replacement button/connection to mount it back to the motherboard, or should I just look at getting a new motherboard? Let me know. Thanks!

    No, You can buy that tiny component. But remember it is not easy to repair it by ourself. Looking for a good soldering guy.

    Sure thing. Almost everywhere. I don't know the size from the button, could you give me these? Or clear pictures? I will do my best to find the right one!

    Its a little hard to see, but the white part is the broken casing that housed the button. The button would be very small.

    Hey guys..... Same thing happened to my P3S. Scary how the switch broke in the same exact place as Jackson - If I uploaded a picture they would look almost identical. Any update on what button to buy and where?

    Hi,I just read your post about your broken RC link button. I just had the exact same thing happened to mine and wondered if you ever had any luck finding a replacement without having to replace the entire motherboard.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    As far as I recall, this is the part that people have commented here that has worked. It seems that they always come in lots of 10, so you may be able to find someone here who can just give you one.

    I'm a little confused after having read these posts about link button problems, because I have never used the link button and my P3s always connects automatically.
