はじめに

I did a dumb and bonked my not-under-warranty drone into a tree branch. If you’re here you probably bonked yours into something too. Hopefully this will help you get your baby airborne again!

  1. Remove 6 hex screws from top cover
    • Remove 6 hex screws from top cover

  2. Remove two hex screws on either side of the gimbal
    • Remove two hex screws on either side of the gimbal

    • Remove two smaller hex screws from the covers under the front arms

  3. Use the flat end of a spudger to remove the covers under the front arms
    • Use the flat end of a spudger to remove the covers under the front arms

    • These covers are fitted tightly enough that it's difficult to get a pry tool underneath. I found that when I pressed my thumb against the outside corner (red arrow) I got just enough of a gap on the opposite side (orange arrow) to squeeze a pry tool into it.

  5. Lift the back end of the cover The cover is connected to the body by a cable. Don't open the cover all the way until this cable is unplugged!

    • Unplug the 6-pin GPS connector, then pry along the edges to release the plastic clips holding the top down

    • Remove the cover

    • The clips at the nose of the drone require some extra pressure to release

  6. Desolder the larger gray motor wire running to the arm to be replaced
    • Desolder the larger gray motor wire running to the arm to be replaced

    • Desolder the larger white motor wire

    • Desolder the larger black motor wire

    • Desolder the smaller black LED wire

    • Desolder the smaller white LED wire

    • The marked wires are for the right arm. The wires to desolder when replacing the left arm are the mirror image of the ones shown here.

    • Don't forget that plastic has a tendency to melt when exposed to heat! I may or may not have disregarded this fact and put a mark on my drone...

  7. Remove 6 hex screws
    • Remove 6 hex screws

    • Remove 2 hex screws with longer posts

  8. Remove bottom heat plate
    • Remove bottom heat plate

    • This plate may stick a bit due to the thermal compound underneath it. It's a good idea to replace the thermal paste during reassembly

  9. If replacing the right front leg, unplug the white front antenna cable
    • If replacing the right front leg, unplug the white front antenna cable

    • If replacing the left front leg, unplug the black front antenna cable

  10. On the top of the drone, gently release the rear leg cable bundle from its cable management clip

    • Lift the white or black wire from the previous step up through the drone

  11. Remove the Phillips head screw below the arm to be replaced
    • Remove the Phillips head screw below the arm to be replaced

  12. Use a metal pry tool or flat head screwdriver to lift out the spring-loaded hinge The spring in this hinge makes it difficult to reseat during reassembly. The easiest way I found to replace it was to fold the arm back into the closed position, and then grab across the top of the hinge with the very tip of a pair of needle nose pliers, using the pliers to rotate the hinge into position and press it down into place.
