    Hello all,

    I recently crashed a phantom, well it didn't really crashed. Just landed in sea water.

    Hence I was thinking maybe it's a good idea to rebuild it, instead of buying a new one.

    The phantom shell is still in good condition. I just need to know where I can get the circuits boards on the phantom and the naza etc.

    Any where I can get a list of the components and boads on the phantom 1?

    -Mainboard (might as well get the upgrade board), includes LED module: http://1uas.com/index.php?route=product ... uct_id=882

    -NAZA: http://1uas.com/Phantom-MC

    -GPS module: http://1uas.com/Phantom-GPS

    -Compass: http://1uas.com/Phantom-Compass

    -2 ESC's w/Green LED's: http://1uas.com/Phantom-ESC-GREEN

    -2 ESC's w/Red LED's: http://1uas.com/Phamtom-ESC-RED

    -2.4GHz D-bus receiver: http://www.allerc.com/dji-phantom-part- ... -8511.html

    -2 CW motors: http://1uas.com/DJI-Phantom-Motor-LEFT- ... reads-M2M4

    -2 CCW motors: http://1uas.com/13587799320-Phamtom-Motor

    Total cost of those parts, from any DJI dealer: $646
    Total cost of a new 1.1.1: $479

    To be honest you could probably find used versions of most of those parts for sale which would cut back on the total cost, but you still might not get lower or much lower than what a new one would run you.

    I'll add that other than the shell and landing gear, even if any of the parts still work after recovery, it's HIGHLY recommend that you consider everything totaled after even a brief dunk in salt water. It gets into and in between components and eats them alive.
