    • Disconnect the electronics from the frame of the drone by pulling each arm out of the hole in the frame holding it in place.

    • If present, remove the white tape over the black and red wires for the head lamp with a metal spudger (a wide flat-head tool for separating plastic parts).

      • If tape is removed, keep 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.
