Introduction

Use this guide to replace a broken propellor on your DJI Phantom 2 Vision+. When replacing, be sure to match the original propellor spin direction.

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

Tools

No tools required.

  1. Pinch the top and bottom tabs of the battery case, pull the battery straight out to remove it.
    • 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.

  2. Determine if the propellor is clockwise or counter-clockwise rotating.
    • Determine if the propellor is clockwise or counter-clockwise rotating.

    • Each arm is labeled with a rotation icon that shows the direction of propellor rotation.

    • If this icon is missing or you can't read it, you can determine the direction of rotation by examining the propellor.

      • A clockwise rotating propellor pushes air down while rotating clockwise, and the opposite is true for a counter-clockwise rotating propellor, and the propellor blade slopes up in the direction of rotation.

    • Loosen a clockwise rotating propeller by holding the motor with one hand and spinning the propellor clockwise.

    • Remove the propellor.

    • Loosen a counter-clockwise rotating propeller by holding the motor with one hand and spinning the propellor counter-clockwise.

    • Remove the propellor.

Conclusion

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
