Hello,

After a very bumpy landing, the top and bottom parts of the shell along the arms have been slightly displaced at a few points.

It seems to be a few of the tabs that lock the shell together that have popped out slightly. I have tried to lightly push them back in, and worried about exerting too much force on them. I would ideally avoid the process of opening the whole shell and risking getting something wrong putting it back together (also because don't have the right screws at hand).

1) should I try pushing the tabs back in hard?
2) is it safe to fly with the slight misalignment?
3) anything else I should consider checking as a result of this?

Thanks a lot!
Andrew
 
1 - yes (look on youtube, shows how it fits together)
2 - probably not
3 - recalibrate - imu
check all screw holes for any cracks as well all the shell. Check cables etc.
 
It would be a better idea to open the shell and put it back together properly -- rather than trying to jam the tabs back in while the shell is screwed together.
