Hello guys,Yesterday while I was packing my mavic air I observed a weird crack at the rc antenna. The thing is that I havent dropped my controller and generally I am very carefull with my stuff. I can't understand if its something that my affect the controllers behavior but I want to be sure because i dont want to have any accidents. What should I do?

Hi, here is your picture, however, it's blurry and difficult to see what happened to your RC antenna. For flight safety purpose, you are recommended to start a case and send it in for diagnosis: https://www.dji.com/support. Thanks!

Take the controller to the window then open the curtains and take another picture.

Looking at my controller right now and it seems like a hard bit to break.

Did you leave it in a cold car?

The crack will not affect the performance of the RC, personally I would just seal the crack with a little super glue (Gel Type) and fly on. The actual antenna is a single coaxial wire inside each of the plastic housing(s).
Most likely the will charge you to replace the antenna housing.

Ship that back to DJI asap and don't use it again or you'll be shipping back the drone with it...
