    Anyone has tips on how to fix this? The cables got disconnected from the plug, like if they were cutted,durign mid flight, scary moment, the phantom gave red lights and came to the ground, where I got a major league baseball catch on it. Luckily without harming itself or anyone.

    Solder.

    If a cable was cut in flight power would be lost and the Phantom would plummet. That's not what the video shows.

    Thanks for the advice, any soldering tutorials or tips for this kind of cable and adapter?Thats what happened in the video, the battery was in 4:30 minutes, it ussually delivers like 7 to 9 minutes, so it was a weird red light and when i checked it was only the grey wired totally cutted and disconnected.
