    Any suggestions for a relatively inexpensive ($50 or less) and straight forward install replacement for upgraded antenna on the RC controller of the P3S?

    Thanks, Mitchell.

    Yeah I broke mine too. And the wire came loose. I was going to get the mod. Fplvr. But changed my mind as too expensive. 253. I just bought a replacement remote for 90 dollars. And a windsurfer to increase range for 4 dollars. Still need to fix or sell my remote with the busted antenna. The aircraft still works with it. It is just affecting the range. Let me know if you find a place to repair cheaply. Thanks

    Tony, if you decide to sell the broken TX, I would be interested. I want to try that Argtek range extender.

    Yes I will probably just put it up for sale. I've only had it 5 days before I dropped it. Not sure how to offer it to you.

    Yes. I'm in Florida. Hate to have this thing jut sitting here. Still brand new. Except one drop on the floor. Now I baby the new one and just order a strap for it.
    I guess I should be happy I can get anything for it. I will put it on eBay if you want it. And make it exclusive. As long as you offer fair price. Under my own name as seller.

    Listed it in eBay. Exact wording. Phantom 3 standard remote control. You will see the name match. Put fair price there for anyone. Phantom 3 Standard Remote Control

    I bid on your transmitter. I just hope the connector isn't broken off the board. If I get outbid I will be ok with that. I figure I will use it for parts if need be, but with the wire pulled out like that I have a feeling the connector is broke off the module itself.

    No. It's not broken off the board. 100% sure if that. As I used the remote still until the new one came. It works perfect. Eben with the broken antenna. Which bidder are you. I can end the bidding.

    I see same name. eBay frowns on ending bidding early. So will wait. I don't think any one else is even interested in it. Because i do mention the antenna came loose.

    don't you print labels through ebay? you save about 10% and print them on your printer. free tracking that way no matter what way you ship.

    Thank you Tony for the transmitter and the fast shipping. I replaced the antenna with a DBS mod and it works fine.
