    I should've known better transporting my Phantom 2 inside my pick-up without utilizing my case. Anyways I went to fly and noticed my GPS switch was broken. Has this happened to anyone and if so, how hard of a fix is this?[​IMG]

    I'm thinking you can just go to Radio Shack (if you're in the U.S. that is), show them what you need and they should be able to find you a replacement. Then all you should have to do is unsolder the wires off the old one and solder them to the new one, you need to make sure you keep the same wire placement from the old to the new of course.

    Easy to replace and electrician or hobby shop can exchange it . Switch will be a couple of dollars.
    If you are happy with a soldering iron do it yourself ensure that each wire is fitted to match.
