    After almost 1 year, I developed a few hairline cracks under the motors. I have taken the top shell off numerous times for mods, and decided it was time to do a overhall of the shell.

    I moved my canbus port and mini iOSD inside the shell, and extended the canbus wire thru the hole by the gimbal so I have a connection for my 2.4GHz Data Link groundstation


    I also moved my Futaba Receiver into the Battery compartment to make some extra room under the hood



    The canbus wire tucks away nicely as it comes thru the bottom of the Phantom


    Here is a video of the swap

    Nice work! Cutting mats make the best P2 work surfaces too ;-)
