    I have searched around and can't find a P3S antenna replacement for the RC. I cracked the antenna and it pulled it apart on the inside. Yesterday I pull it out of the top of the controller with no resistance. Any clue as to where I can just get a replacement to put back in it? All help is appreciated a ton. I'm fairly new to this world.

    DJI does not sell this part. Check with shops that repair Phantoms or perhaps you can find a good deal on a used remote controller being sold for parts on eBay.

    If you cannot find a replacement part, another option would be to send it into DJI for repair.

    It probably depends on their current workload. I'm sure they could give you an idea of the turnaround time if you call DJI support.

    You may also go into the classified section of this forum, and put a want ad in.
    There was another thread a couple of days ago, and a few members had some

    I dropped my RC and damaged the antennae. I sent the RC to DJI for repair. Repair and return time was 2 weeks with a $66.00 repair tab.

    Already. I bought an antenna and feel pretty confident in changing it out.
