I recently crashed my Phantom 3 and ended up having to do a
complete shell replacement.  Given the magnitude of the work
required, I figured I would make a few additional upgrades as
well:  Custom paint (lower shell), Remote Control HDMI Module
Upgrade, and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Propellers.  Also, since
I was not able to find any YouTube videos or Forum threads
that went into the level of detail that I was looking for, I
went ahead and created a five-part series on YouTube that
walks through the process in detail.  I'm guessing that there
are others out there who either have or will need to do a
full shell replacement at some point so I hope this series
will be helpful.  Below, is a brief description of each of
the five parts along with a link.  Feel free to reach out if
you have any questions!


- Intro & Parts
- Custom Paint Prep
- RC HDMI Upgrade


- Top Shell Removal
- Gimbal Disassembly
- GPS Detachment


- Disassembly of Lightbridge Antennas, Landing Gears,
Compass, Motors, and Main Board


- Disassembly of Battery Cage, Battery Terminal, USB Port,
VPS Module
- Transfer to New Shell and Reassembly


- GPS Module Transfer
- Grand Reveal
- Calibration
- Test Flight

Excellent work m8, and love your new paint job! I did notice you used 4 gimbal dampners there should be just 2 other wise you will get an overloaded gimbal warning.

Either way would not cause a gimbal overload but would likely introduce vibration.

great job and awesome look

Thanks Tim - quick question for you regarding the friendly debate taking place on my thread... So on my aircraft, I have always had four damper balls and four clear pins/clips going through the four balls.  However, it seems like the norm is to have four damper balls, but only two pins/clips (front right and back left).  What I would like to know is:
1). Which is correct and why?
2). Is it harmful to have all four balls with pins through them?

Very excellent and useful post.  I wish you worked for DJI, I am sure you would be great in the repair department.  Any ideas on how to fix a blurry camera lens?  My P3P camera is out of focus.
