    Ok - so i was a total idiot today and dropped my transmitter. The Range Extender took the entire brunt of the impact and the case of it cracked and the main board got damaged as well. The extender will power on, but the system light never, ever lights up.

    Luckily the transmitter still works great, but for now i have no FPV. I guess this is what flying a Phantom 1 feels like.

    Does anyone know where has any Range Extender's in stock? I am hoping i can find somewhere that is open on Monday that i can get overnight shipping.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    You might email all the major Phantom 2 Vision dealers, like B&H Photo, etc.
    And, DJI themselves might be able to help. Sometimes kindness helps.

    I found that IntelligentUAS has them in stock and i will have my replacement tomorrow. Thought i would just share this incase anyone else has the unfortunate (read: dumb actions) experience I had.

    thx!

    I got a tracking number today from the one I had on backorder at Heli World. You might check if they have any left. www.heli-world.com
