    Just did a shell swap on the P3P, all went well only when I fired it up the app says No Signal.. It's video signal I assume as the light on the RC is green. I think I may have the antenna order mis-configured on the circuit board that's under the VPM ( the OFDM receiver module), 4 spots are labeled 1,2 3, and 4 where the leads go into the board. Could anyone tell me for example, left gear forward antenna is position 3 on the board, and so on..? I thought had a system to remember but I think it's wrong. BTW, everything was fine before the swap over. Thanks in advance.

    This was a big help, I was able to determine I had the correct configuration after all. Turns out to have been the Apple usb cable, removed and reconnected both ends and then got a signal! Thanks again..

    When I replaced my compass I took pics every step of the dissassembly so I could reverse the steps putting it back together. Worked like a charm! Good luck on yours!
