[size=14.6667px]I posted earlier looking for help diagnosing a problem I have with my P3 that I crashed. This evening I finished taking apart the aircraft and found some things I need help identifying.[size=14.6667px]
[size=14.6667px]In the first pic I have a small round translucent plastic piece (A) that fell out when I opened the craft and I have no idea where it came from.
[size=14.6667px]
[size=14.6667px]The second part (B) is a button of some sort. I think this broke off the mother board in the 3rd pic where the red arrow is.
[size=14.6667px]
[size=14.6667px]In the 4th picture you can see the top of the mother board, the arrow points to where I believe this part broke off and from the opposite side.
[size=14.6667px]
[size=14.6667px]In the second photo I am curious what those 2 white parts (C&D) are. One has a grey wire and the other has a black wire, both go to the gimbal.
[size=14.6667px]
[size=14.6667px]Thanks for any help!

small round translucent plastic piece (A)
sits in the hole located in last picture near lower left of C. That is a button to link the RC to drone when you do that
Yeah it fell out and was in my battery tray when I took mine apart to replace all 3 of the cables going down to the gimble

In the second photo I am curious what those 2 white parts (C&D) are.
Those are the 2.4 GHZ antenna that connect to the camera gimble https://www.amazon.com/gp/produc ... 0?ie=UTF8&psc=1

man i feel your pain.
Had to buy one of those magnifier hoods to work on this stuff. Spent quite a bit of time reconnecting them 2.4 ghz antenna to the gimble, they must have a tool to do that cause that is not easy and so very tiny so make it really easy to mess the connectors up. My crash ripped the cable's right out of both of them and the ribbon cable so I bought what was in the link and the ribbon cable separate package.

How did you knock those parts loose? They are internal, and nothing that should be touched...

I would solder wires to the piece (B) and then solder those wire to the board.

It would be best if you sent the aircraft in for service.

too late, balls deep in this repair. I have done all I can for now, just waiting for the new antenna and blades and (I think) I will be back up and flying!
Just curious though, where would I send it if I did want it serviced?
THANKS
