It's easiest to just replace those antennas. You can find them here on Amazon or here on eBay.

That's the same part I listed above. What seems untrustworthy?

I did wonder why in the description it says
This product has been removed from a complete model.

Why would you do that?

Whilst the drone could have been complete it might also have been non functional.
Or the seller might think they can get more for in total by dismantling a working drone and selling off individual parts

Daylight robbery!

Going to ring a DJI repair today and ask how much to repair it. If they charge this much for them on eBay I can only imagine what a repairer will charge me.

Why is it daylight robbery?
Functional bits of a broken drone are perfectly satisfactory and almost certainly a lot sight cheaper than new bits, ditto "breaking" a working drone for bits.

I recollect some car or motorcycle breakers would buy brand new vehicles and dismantle them for their parts, I don't know if it is still done.

$182 is a rip off.

New, 18 USD, Au $27. shipping (to UK ) 17USD, 25 Au $ and there are several in the USD 50 range

182 USD is steep but they are new and boxed so presumably not stripped out of a drone besides which you don't have to buy them

There are people asking for £800+ for a P3Pro when the going rate is £350 - £420, the former is not likley to sell

Some people disassembly brand new drones to sell the parts. That's often done when the parts cannot be found (or DJI doesn't sell them individually) or the people wishing to sell the parts are not DJI dealers.

What is the hole underneath for?
That's where the button is located for linking the remote controller to the Phantom. See more details here.
