    I crashed.

    The compass connector on the main circuit board was ripped off, but besides that the thing is flyable. However, I have determined that I'll probably need a new main circuit board.

    Something like this:

    Does anyone have experience or advice for the installation of said board?

    It is a pretty easy process. I would highly recommend replacing all of the cables while you are at it. A cable kit is cheap and easy to find. I would mark all connections with a unique mark so you remember where all of the cables go, or take several photos. It can be tricky replacing the cables when you have not marked them. A new compass and cable is pretty cheap too; You can find them dirt cheap in a kit which includes new legs. My legs took a beating in a crash, so for little extra I got the compass too. Also, shop around. There is a HUGE difference in price between different vendors! Lastly, that appears to be the correct board, if you were asking...

    IF thats a phantom 2 vision. You also have the option of plugging your compass in to the gps module up in the top of the shell if the plug on the board is off. Which is were its normally plugged in to on the p2v instead of directly in to the board.
