What’s under the hood? More deets in this teardown video…

Wonder what’s inside? A new teardown video provides a pretty good look at what’s inside the DJI FPV drone, as well as tips on how to take it apart – and where to buy parts.

Whether you like this drone or not, there’s a lot of tightly integrated technology packed in there. Now, a lot of owners will likely remove the canopy at some point just to take a look, but some will want to go further.

Now, a new video from a UK repair shop offers a pretty clear look at the process – and the parts.

Things like ribbon connectors are super easy to damage, and thermal paste between some components can make them a bit challenging to pull apart. So… unless you really know what you’re doing, it’s better to just watch.

But if you’re planning to get inside a DJI FPV drone, this is a great guide:

Now…put it back together…
