Finally getting around to fixing my DJI Phantom 3 Standard and while I'm putting it back together I see one prong of the compass connector is broken off and missing. Google search looks like this has happened to people before. Wondering if I should glue the right side down or should I solder? Any other ways to fix this?

If it was me, I'd buy a new center board.  

Good luck

Same thing happened to me one time...It's sitting in top of a closet..  All I can say is good luck.  Couldn't solder.

Did you ever try to fly it without the compass?

solder the cables straight onto the board

I thought about it but the points are insanely small. Not sure if I'm capable.

I do not suggest to repair at your end, please consider to send it in for fully diagnosis.

It wont even spin up without compass.  Lights on rear blink red, indicating "critical error". You could buy the board, but it's a pain to replace. I just bought another and am saving that for parts .
That connection is very easy to break.   Sorry it happened to you too.
