So, I've followed the instructional videos, on removing the screws and releasing the locking tabs.

After much sweat and frustration, I'm only able to get a couple tabs unlocked. Can't get the cover off.

Is there a special trick? A special tool?

Should I just send this to someone for the repair, rather than fighting with it myself? (Replacing antennas and cables that run to the gimbal camera.)

Is there someone that does repair in the SF Bay area.

I recently took one apart and the thing i noticed that hung me up is a couple of the clips release I the opposite direction. Some you need to push in and some you need to pry out.

The trick from the video with the propellers seemed to work. I got the cover off and was able to replace the antennae.

Now the battery LEDs are indicating a battery overcharge... :(
