    Hello Fellow Phantom Flyers,
    I recently dropped my Transmitter for my Phantom 1 and broke the switch for the GPS/Atti (located top right). My question is does anyone know where to purchase one of these switches so I can replace it, or do I have to replace the entire transmitter? Thanks.

    Safe and Happy Flying,

    With my experience, most places don't carry the switches.
    Which side broke on you?

    You wouldn't be able to do a compass calibration, but you could theoretically still use it.
    Otherwise, IMO you'll need a replacement. I'm sure there are some DIYers on here that will have other ideas too!

    Maplins or rs. I haven't taken mine to bits but would be surprised if it weren't a 3pst.

    Trivial to change it.
