    I'm speaking about 5GHz antenna.I managed to brake it.Wires are still connected and it seems that it works properly.However the plastic part doesn't hold the antenna in proper way.Its broken in the joint

    I've seen them on eBay,
    Easy fix, you'll have to open remote, remove ( goo ) silicone from antenna lead to receiver ( tan colored goo ) then once goo is removed, simply unplug lead, and plug in new antenna, I'd place some more silicone on the new connection to keep from coming loose! Reassemble remote ( careful DO NOT PINCH ANTENNA WIRE, while reassembling remote! )

    Hope this helps!

    You can spend the extra and for $100 or so you can do a DBS mode. You won't need that antenna any more and you'll most likely triple your distance.

    I'm not sure DJI sells them packaged with a part #?

    I saw one that was taken from a new phantom ( RC recycler ) on eBay!

    Never seen a new one in package?
