    Sooooo.....

    Let's supposed my piece that's supposed to look like this:

    Now looks like this:

    I'm thinking that's bad, right?

    Do I need to order in a new transmitter, or would simply covering the part remedy the issue? Everything seemed to work fine when I came inside.

    Thanks for the input.

    (Flight time on this brand-new quad: maybe 5 minutes. Crash: gentle. Luck: unfortunate.)

    DuaneM Drone? I don't see any drone ... crap!

    It's part of your FPV set up. You can buy a new one here:

    Oops just noticed the word "source" under your first photo, you already know where to get one cheaper. It's the FPV receiver and I wonder if it would work like that?

    Have you gone out and tired anyway?

    Yeah, it seems to work fine. Luckily it's not too expensive of a part, so I can fly it until it fails. We'll see how it goes!

    Thanks for the reply/

    Hi mate put some hot glue if you have a glue gun if not CA to protect the coil in side and it will stop dirt getting in

    Thanks for the tip! Went ahead and covered it with a dab of superglue (I didn't have hot glue). Seemed to work alright. Still transmits fine. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
