Replacing the top case on your DJI Phantom 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.

    • Lift up on the top portion of the shell and set it on its side.

    • Do not attempt to fully remove the case. The GPS and Magnetometer cables connect the top shell to the rest of the Phantom, be careful not to stress or break these cables.

    • Lift the GPS cable molex connector up out of its socket on the main board.

    On the Phantom FCP40 (essentially a Phantom 1), the GPS cable connects directly to the Naza controller box, not to the board as shown here. Also the compass (magnetometer) is connected to the main board, not the GPS unit in the top shell, so you don't need to remove it to remove the top shell.

    • Gently pull the slack of the magnetometer cable through the case bottom shell.

    • The case top shell should now have enough slack to work on the interior of the Phantom.

    • Twist the magnetometer cable as shown to prepare for passing it through the case bottom shell.

    • Remove the case top shell from the bottom shell.

    • If your new case top shell did not come with a GPS module, you may need to transfer the old one. To do so, gently peel off the large, gray adhesive label and transfer it to the new shell.
