    Hello everyone my name is Bill and this my first time on here so please go easy on me if I sound like an idiot. Basically I crashed my phantom on landing and motor 1 now has a blinking red light and doesn't work. Pictures below is what I believe is the problem. A cable has been torn coming out of the vision controller. I was looking for your guys opinions on how to fix it. I was thinking a quick solder but then I realized how close to the adapter it is. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    From what I see there it looks like the red cable as well as the orange one next to it need repair, and the plug itself looks to be damaged as well.

    My suggestion would be to cut all four wires right at the plug and crimp on a new one.

    Would you happen to have an idea what kind of plug that is or where to find out? I can't find anything.
