    the author forgot to mention to remove also the two screws right next to the gimbal. in this picture, they are already removed. without removing these, you cannot open the drone!!

    also, the screws above in the red circles are not the same as the ones in step 2 and 5! They are shorter! I don’t know how long but not 5mm!

    Joris Ott - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

    Yes, please add those screws - almost broke the top case ;-(

    • Remove the two small panel pieces near the gimbal case with the tweezers.

    BEWARE! The two screws under the covers are not mentioned in step four to be removed, but they show that they have been removed in step five.

    Step five should read- Remove the SIX 5mm 1.5 Hex screws that are under the panel pieces by turning the screwdriver counterclockwise.

    • Remove the six 5mm 1.5 Hex screws that are under the panel pieces by turning the screwdriver counterclockwise.

    You need to remove the 2 screws (as the picture shows) that are adjacent to each side of the gimbal (below the screws circled in the picture. This also connect to the top shell and could cause an issue!

    • Flip the drone back over so the upper shell is facing up.

    • Pry off the upper shell with a nylon spudger.

    • Be careful when prying with the spudger because you could damage the upper shell's plastic tabs.

    using pry tool is not necessary - once all top shell screws are removed you should be able to take the top shell off with your hand.

    Sorry “KopaZ Maymay”, aber der Plastiköffner ist “sowas von erforderlich”, weil man sonst leider die beiden Plastiknasen in der Front riskiert.

    Orbiter - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

    Zudem fehlt hier die Angabe der genauen Lage von beiden vorderen Nasen:

    Sie befinden sich von der Mitte aus gemessen jeweils 9mm nach links und rechts. Der obere Gehäuseteil wird von zwei 5mm breiten Bügeln gehalten, die unter die horizontal nach innen zeigenden Nasen vom unteren Gehäuseteil greifen.

    Orbiter - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

    Sorry “KopaZ Maymay”, but the plastic opener is “so necessary” because otherwise you unfortunately risk the two plastic noses in the front.

    In addition, the exact position of both front noses is missing in the description:

    They are measured 9mm from the center to the left and right. The upper part of the housing is held by two 5mm wide brackets that grip under the noses pointing horizontally inwards from the lower part of the housing.

    Hi, is it a simple replacement. Ie you do not have to reprogram? Thanks

    • Remove the two gold coaxial connectors by pulling gently at the base with tweezers.

    die Wifi-Platine hängt an einem weiteren Flachkabel, welches vorher gelöst werden muss. am einfachsten geht es, wenn man den Kühldeckel auf der anderen Seite löst, den Silikonkleber entfernt und es von dort lößt.

Is it possible to remove the wifi card completely and fly the drone without it ?

Quentin V - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

Are there any connectivity issues, like new passwords etc?

Chris Stoll - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

Mine was removed by the former owner and the coaxial connectors were removed at the same time. I bought a new module that has the coaxial wires and one ribbon cable and now I have to see about removing either the bottom of the drone or one of the boards to gain access to where these connectors go to. Is there another video as to how to do that? Several of the hex screws are stripped to the point where my 5mm hex screwdriver don't remove them. Is there a fix for that (stripped screws)?
