    I had to replace my props after a crash, im which i lost control during flight. After this I tried to take off as the props were only slightly out of shape, and what I found was that when I tried to land the drone wouldn’t disarm l, the switch didn’t do anything, and furthermore I’ve had issues with controlling the drone over distances over 100 meters.

    *The above is to provide context in case it helps*

    The problem:

    When I was replacing the props I noticed this small loose wire where the antenna was soldered (right antenna) The wire was apparently splitting of the main cable and soldered underneath the main antenna to the board. Now this small wire is broken, and so I opened up the drone to get a closer look and to be able to take a picture. (See picture attached)
    Could this be causing any of the problems? And if so how do I fix it?

    And also, the antennas got caught in my props a while back and so they are trimmed about 1 and 0.5 inches from their original lengths, Incase that helps.

    Thank you and all help is appreciated!!!

    Both Your antennas need replacing.

    The actual antenna part is the tip of the cable So you have lost the actual antenna.
