    Please can anyone assist me,
    I have been stupid enough to follow a vid on youtube by a guy named Peter Homer, it was a simple upgrade he say to mount 2 x new antenna outside your drone to improve Gps lock,this is the 2.4g ones,
    I have followed the vid to the exact spec as he has given me as in antenna model, cable type and all, only when all was plugged up and i restart my bird i have no vid at all to my phone! all i have is the signal strenth of my 5.8 rx have tried a hard reset and checked everything 10 times over but to no avail!,
    I am starting to think that following this guy has cost me dearly!
    anyone know if the unit can be repaired or does it have to be replaced??
    Thanks in advance
    Pat.

    Check the 3 cables that go in to the top of the camera top plate. They need to be pushed in firmly.they can look like their home but they need an extra push
