About a week and a half ago, I crashed our Phantom 3 drone because I was being stupid. Needless to say, we ordered replacement parts and my son installed them. Everything was running but we had some issues with the camera (2.7K camera). It was a bit slated and it seemed to be getting jammed, My son’s attempts to correct it failed and I made the executive decision to just go ahead and buy a new camera. A new camera was ordered and should arrive on Monday.
The other part that was broken was the compass. This part was replaced fairly easily. Thank goodness for YouTube and other people flying the Phantom 3, and their repair videos. YouTube makes life a lot easier for us, don’t you agree?
Here’s the video just before I crashed during a flight over Lake Union.
