    Hi,

    The Phantom Vision 2 fell during flight from about a meter - due to a mistake I did.
    Nothing was broken, it powers up nicely - but I cannot connect to the wifi - I can't see the Phantom network... :cry:

    Any suggestion or know how to reconnect a specific plug?

    Thanks, Gal.

    The Vision has only one cable connected to the camera. Did the small switch on the back of the camera get turned off? SD card working?

    The Camera seems to work - when pressing the button it takes a photo. The wifi is in the camera?

    Yes. The camera on the Vision has the wifi transmitter and antennaes inside. They are pretty tough, I wouldn't think a small fall would break it. You might try rebinding.

    Warning: Do not remove and insert the camera plug while the Phantom is powered on!
    Doing so may short out a tiny component on the motherboard. Power off first.
