    It seems to me that everything is left-to-right along the ribbon cable and the remaining connector.
    Stands to reason it would apply in the case of reconnecting the rogue connector?

    I've installed it backwards before. No harm. You will notice the telemetry wont work.

    Did you notice any difference with the satellite count after installing those cables?

    I just replaced that cable with the original DJI one. The new ones you bought look a LOT better. That weird cable DJI uses is a mess.

    Just had a break in the rain so went out to test the phantom since re-shelling and installing the new cables, everything went fine couldn't tell any difference in sats though so the shilled cables didn't make much difference. Got a sat lock within a minute of powering up the phantom
