Introduction

Replacing the top case on your DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ drone requires removing all four propellors and threading the magnetometer cable through a small hole in the lower case. You may also need to transfer the GPS board to the replacement top case.

Note: the drone used in this guide probably looks different from yours! It's just a custom paint job, otherwise it's completely stock.

Pinch the top and bottom tabs of the battery case, pull the battery straight out to remove it. The metal connectors form a stiff mechanical connection with the battery, you will need quite a bit of force to remove the battery. Hold the Phantom Vision+ with one hand and remove the battery with the other.
