Lastly, if there is white tape over the black and red wires for the head lamp, remove the tape with a metal spudger. Remove this tape but try to keep it in reusable condition to re-secure the headlight later so there are no loose wires. Separate the plastic tabs securing the motor arms to the drone cover and delicately pull out the arm. Do this for all 4 arms to remove the frame from the cover.
