    I'm shooting a job on location in the desert with my Q500 4K and crashed. The camera was separated from the airframeand the block of data wires seems to have pulled out cleanly. But the 3 wires from the camera platform (the part that slides in & out) to the camera were pulled loose and I need to know how to solder these back. If anybody has experience with this I would appreciate the help. I stand to lose big $ if I can't fix it now.

    Your Q500 4K came with a black 3 wire cable. Instead of soldering the wires back onto the board, you can use the cable to connect the camera to your quad. If you don't know what I am talking about, do a quick search on this forum.

    Wire pic attached. Or you may use wire jumper harness in the meantime.

    Thanks for the help. I did find out that the platform wires are not necessary for the camera operation. Since the harness wires pulled out clean, when I put everything back together and cleaned it up, it works! Thanks again guys for getting back to me.
