    A couple days ago the Phantom 3A went in my direction during take off. A gust of wind and some vegetation was all it needed. I jumped backwards, but not fast enough. The blade hit the receiver and cut off the antenna - look at the picture.

    It still flies and I get a descent range off flying (at least 500 m). But the problem is the liveview. The video is crap, it flickers and disappears.

    Now I want to replace the antenna, but I don´t know how. I have considered the DBS mod, but I would prefer to just have normal antennas. Do you have any ideas how to do a replacement?

    I have the fpvlr antenna v2 without booster. I guess it is the best actually.

    Man don't fly/switch on your R/C with a broken antenna you risk burning it out.
    Get a DBS you wont regret it!

    Do not fly it until you replace the broken antenna.You are going to burn the RF circuit of the radio.
