    The S1 switch broken on my Phantom 3 Standard controller. 1) Can I buy a replacement switch? 2) Can I switch the out easily and how? 3) If all else fails, what is the best and most reasonable repair outlet (if those two things can be synonymous) Thanks!

    They aren't hard to replace and the ones on the P2 are known to fail.

    Just make sure you match the wires when soldering and take pictures before you start. The one in the link is a round toggle switch. The one on the P2 controller is a flat toggle switch.

    If you are desperate and need to fly, you can always swap the S1 and S2 switches around.

    i have a donor controller if youd like a switch out of it. i broke one of the connections for the video cables and the romex connector came off for the gimbal wheel. it has no antennas in it but other than that its complete and fully functional

    Shoot me a pm. I can ship it USPS if your in the states. PayPal you a request and you'd pay the shipping and what ever you feel is a fair price for the switch.
