    Hi, Guys!

    I have just picked up my Phantom on the bottom of the sea. The depth was 16 meter. Fortunately i had used the GoPro Hero 3 diving case, sow i got everything on "tape":)

    Here is my question:

    I have bought the spare part inside the phantom shell.And I want to use my phantom radio, but i think my phantom radio receiver is dead. Sow what can i do?? Do i have to buy a new radio and receiver? Or can i buy an new phantom radio receiver and bind it to my old phantom radio???


    As soon as iam finished with the video "phantom goes Titanic, then i will shear it with you quy`s.

    Wow,. glad you were able to recover it! (how long was it sunk for? did you hire divers to get it?)

    Finding a Rx might be tricky, but I believe it's bind-able once you can find one.

    might be an opportunity to consider upgrading to a newer Tx/Rx tho , such as a Futaba.

    How much for the radio tx/ RX? The phantom was in the water for 5 days.. I have a friend how is a diver. Lucky for me that he found it.

    i would recommend you get a tx/rx combo with at least 8 channels. the most common and popular for the phantom from futaba is the futaba 8j.
