I was flying down a path in between trees when my drone lost GPS the wind took it and it flew into a tree. Luckily I wasn't flying too high but the crash ripped both the wifi antenna wires apart that attach to the gimbal. Has anyone got any advice on replacement antennas. Am I correct in thinking these antennas are 2.4ghz? If there are antennas out there that would increase my flying distance that'd be great.

Hi any luck with the antenna? I have the same issue, I managed to re attach them but have very limited camera view. I have heard that there is a mod for an external antenna but can't find much on the subject.

I would remove the top shell and see what you can do to replace the cable. This is a wonderful opportunity to improve the antennas on your bird. See youtube for help.

Having same issue. YouTube no help. The wifi antennas for the aircraft seem to be out of stock everywhere. I tried to recrimp the push on connectors, but they won't hold, very brittle. These are the connectors that attach to the gimbal. Can't find the connectors anywhere either. If there is a way to upgrade to an external antenna, I'm open to ideas. Seems there is one, but only works on P2.

Same thing happened to me. I thought about upgrading my remote to an argtek and use the wifi antennas in the rc to replace the a.c. 2.4ghz antennas.

But Then I ran into these 2 external antennas with ufl connector pigtails on Amazon and just got them this afternoon. Going to try and retrofit them this weekend and see how it works.

The exact same thing happened to me, lost GPS wind took it and crashed hard. As a result I need to replace the drone antenna wires. Can't find them anywhere. Hate to think my drone is now useless because a simple part is unavailable. If anyone can post a solution for a Phantom 3 standard. That would be welcome-Thanks in advance.
