    Hi guys,
    I`ve had my remote controller dropped on the ground yesterday and unfortunately my antena broke and cut the cable inside.

    (This picture is not mine, I post it to understand where is a problem).

    I went to a local DJI store ant they suggested me order a new cable, because fixing the old cable could reduce RC range distance.
    I tried to look for the cable on ebay but could not understand which exactly I need. And here I need your help guys, could you post me a link where I can find genuine antenna cable for my RC?
    Thanks in advance

    I would do a search on eBay for the antenna as the cable is molded in to the unit. Cable and antenna are together.

    OK thanks.
    Many pilots here are installing RC mods and removes stock antenna, does anyone have one to sell?

    Not sure if you have a lanyard (strap that goes around your neck and connects to the rc unit) but this can help prevent dropping the rc in the future. Got mine from Amazon.

    I had it on my neck, but somehow it unbuckled and RC fell down.

    I just checked... The shipping is going to be worth way more than the antenna

    I guess I will need to add a lanyard connection test to my pre flight check list. I walk around a lot not holding the rc unit and rely a lot on the lanyard. I worry enough about the copter crashing. I don't want to worry about the rc unit crashing as well!

    Hi guys,
    I`m writing here because I still looking for stock 5.8G antenna. Europe seller would be priority, because shipping from US and Canada are expensive.
