    I'm new here so be easy on me. LOL I just purchased a new Phantom 3 4K last weekend and learned a valuable lesson yesterday, my depth perception ain't to good at around 100 yards. Anyway I've got everything ordered to fix it back but I have a small problem. I took everything apart and thought it looked like I could take the wires from the antennas in the landing gears loose from the main board and lightbridge module and not have to remove them each from the landing gear. Well you guessed it, I didn't mark where they come from. I took pics of everything but still can't tell exactly where they need to reattach. Could any of you guys help me out with this with maybe pics or a drawing?

    Thx,
    LTH

    Light box module on a P3 4K? Do you mean a P3 Professional?

    Not the same at all, and the antenna cables route to very different locations. Can you post a photo? And by the way, a camera is a very handy tool for documenting things before disassembly.

    I'm not sure if you caught it in the original post, but I did take pics all through the process but can't make out the routeing. The first pic is from the tear down last night & the second is after everything is removed but the landing-gears/wires from antennas. I'm pretty sure the 2 marked with arrows in the first pic I can figure out.

    Ok, I missed that parts about the photos. I don't think it's critical if the remaining two get swapped. The way the cables are laying may give you a clue as to where they go.
