Just ripped the socket of the antenna of the caddx vista right off (see picture).
Does anyone know if there is a spare part that can be soldered on? Or another part that can be used instead of getting a whole new Vista? Anyone know the right forum for these questions? Thanks.

Hello there Depp. I am sorry for the trouble this has caused and thank you for reaching out. I hope that our fellow DJI co pilots who owns the DJI FPV can give out the best recommendation and information with regard to this matter. Thank you.

Looks like it would be a Hirose U.FL socket. See here https://www.droneauthority.co.uk/products/u-fl-connector-5pcs

Hard to tell from the blurry picture, but you might have torn off the pad for the centre contact pin. On that linked page you can see the tab on the underside of the socket. That tab may have torn off the pad to which it was soldered. That would then need replacing with a fine wire to the next pad or via on the PCB. Probably doable for someone with appropriate SMD repair skills.

Good luck

Thanks a lot.
I probably don't have the appropriate skills :-(

It may be worth seeing if there are any smartphone/laptop/console repair guys near you. Maybe get an estimate and see how that compares to a replacement.
