    I was flying down a path in between trees when my drone lost GPS the wind took it and it flew into a tree. Luckily I wasn't flying too high but the crash ripped both the wifi antenna wires apart that attach to the gimbal. Has anyone got any advice on replacement antennas. Am I correct in thinking these antennas are 2.4ghz? If there are antennas out there that would increase my flying distance that'd be great.

    Hi any luck with the antenna? I have the same issue, I managed to re attach them but have very limited camera view. I have heard that there is a mod for an external antenna but can't find much on the subject.
    Cheers Danny

    I would remove the top shell and see what you can do to replace the cable. This is a wonderful opportunity to improve the antennas on your bird. See youtube for help.
