    I broke the micro USB connector that connects the Phantom to a computer to update and configure the Phantom. Where can I get this cable?

    Rich you might give EZ Drone a call, they're located off of Miramar Road. Good luck

    Alec,

    Thanks for reply, I didn't know about EZ Drone, I am going there tomorrow to check out the place.

    I guess you are local in San Diego? I'm in Poway.

    I replaced mine a few weeks ago. The tiny screws or the dickens to get started when you mount it. Be sure and take a photo of where the cable plugs in so you get it installed in the right place. I actually purchased a spare Phantom because I unplugged the USB cable and could remember where I pulled it from. I ought to know better since I've been a computer tech for over 45 years.

    Here is where I purchase mine from:
    ALL e RC, L.L.C. [order@allerc.com]
    Ordered: 1 Shipped: 1 DJI-P2VP-13 DJI PHANTOM 2 VISION+ USB INTERFACE (FOR P2, P2V&P2V+) - PART 13 $6.00

    Bluegrass, thanks of the reply. I ordered the cables and should arrive in next 1-2 days.

    As I removed the screws I thought about what you said, they are going to be tricky to re-install.

    Thanks,
    Rich

    Alec,

    I did pay a visit to EZ Drone retail store. If I knew about them last week, I could have purchased several items from them like GS and a 7" FVP monitor. I did buy a "patch" antenna to support the local economy.

    I'm having a very frustrating time with GS, been using the SIM mode exclusively and nothing is intuitive or works as I expect. When I think I know what I am doing, I repeat the steps and get different results. I am making progress, but very slow.

    Thanks again for suggesting the local store, they didn't have the cable I needed, but it is good to know they are here.

    Rich
