Doing a bit of searching about on the web and I really can't find out too much about this 'body swap'. However I did find a video, in Chinese, that shows the addition of a single cell lipo battery and a sim card and if I am correct some form of yearly subscription? Can you give us some warts and all about the set up Altech please.

Hi Merlin, Far as I have seen with how too build Videos that every thing from the inner's of Phantom shell should fit inside the body of Phanvic shell , they have mods for the sim card for Adv & Pro P3. mind has the Sim card on Cam P3S .  battery placement is the same as Phantom Shell ,  Yearly Subscription "NO" , just a kit with every thing in it . hope this helps  cheers Alex

No Sim card , just the SD card converter for the Adv / Pro phantoms 3

Respect, seems to be a fair amount of danger in breaking something serious. It looks like the sort of thing a brain surgeon would do to relax at the weekend.

Looks great I ordered today. Just had to have one. Thanks for the tip on paint it will make me rethink my paint scheme. Bet your right on a bad solder joint. I'll likely do a little reflow work while my electronics are out. Looks like a fun project I can't wait. Happy Birthday enjoy the day. Can't wait to se your progress on yours.
