    My drone and controller unlinked it self how I have no clue but when I went to do the relink sequence I notice I was just pushing up on the lil clear plastic button and it wasn't doing anything. Come to find out no button was ever on the board. No way a button was here with soldering points looking this clean. I never needed to use the button b/c the drone comes linked out of the box. So I found the button on amazon in a kit with various other buttons and purchased it for $9.99. Took the drone apart and replaced/soldered the new one on. Relinking the controller worked the first time after I replaced it with no problem. See below!!!

    Nice and concise guide! Fortunately, I have never had my remote disconnect but am glad to have this in mind.

    People here usually buy those 3.2x4.2x2.5mm link buttons in lots of 10 or 100 from Amazon or Ali Express since they seem to fall off of Standards with some regularity. After using one, they end up with 9 or 99 extra buttons to give away. I like the kit you found better. Costs more, but the assortment is nice to have on hand. Good job sir!
