I just crashed my drone into a tree. Not much damage except a black wire can loose. What is that black wire and how can you attach it back?

Ah, it's an easy fix then. This video shows how to reattach it:

That's why I asked if it was damaged ;)

Since the wire is damaged, you'll need to purchase a new antenna. Here are a few places where you can buy that part:

There must be some way to reattach it since it was previously attached. However, I've never seen anyone successfully repair that wire.

A picture is not needed at this point. I already know what a damaged wire looks like. I was just trying to determine if it needed to be reattached or replaced.

You either need to repair the wire or buy the part I linked above.

You'll need to open the Phantom shell in order to remove the other end.
