    I am so bloody sick...

    Was flying today in the woods and forgot to reset my RTH ht...
    Got down to critical battery and as I was landing her... she shot skyward straight up 50 ft into the canopy... tangled up and fell to the ground...

    Cosmetic damage... ahhhh

    But more importantly...
    When I took her top shell off it came straight off... the GPS cable, plug AND socket were loose.
    So the problem is the SOCKET has separated from the main board.
    This is so miniature - do I have to replace the entire board...
    Any idea if there are repair facilities that can resolver it???
    I live in Hawaii - so I will have to ship it - what a pain...

    OK... hit me up with the bad news, but please no recriminations I feel bad enough.
    Mahalo...

    OK... still need to repair this... but am so sick over my OE that I ordered another... switched to the P3 Advanced... don't really need the 4K camera (was resource intensive on my 2010 MBP... and was put off by the lack of signal "within" my line of sight.

    So, lesson learned -
