I just got the phantom and the batter door won't close and I can't seem to get the wires to fit in, my first battery's wires came off when I tried to fit it in

How about a picture or two of what you're trying to do?
Is it a stock battery?
Could there be something in the battery compartment that shouldn't be there?
The wires should have room to fit above and on the left of the battery. Look around inside the shell to see where the plug will fit.

Here is something to help you find info within our forum. It's Google Custom Search.

It looks just like mine does. You should feel a little pressure as you hear the "click" of the latch. The wires coming from the end of the battery will push against the door.
The battery should connect more securely, and should never come unplugged without some force. Your bird will fall from the sky if that happens in flight. :eek:

After you get the DC plug inside, you can shift the wires to the right a bit to make room to shove the balance plug inside as well.

Some folks have just carved a notch in the door to let the balance plug hang out. This is actually useful for external accessories that connect to the balance plug.

Putting the batteries in The P1 can be a fight at times. Plus all the cramming and twisting can eventually break them. Here's what I did and it's easy going.
First..tape the power leads over the end of the battery.
Second..slide the battery in with lead to the left.
Third....make a small notch on battery door for balance leads to stick out..I used a round file
