    Would something like this be good to getting the Phantom open? http://www.amazon.co.uk/KS-Tools-117-16 ... crewdriver

    Also as most screwdrivers seem to have magnetised heads these days- how safe is it to use near the Phantom compass as the instructions say don't use a magnetised screwdriver?

    You'll need a very small Phillips screwdriver too, so you might just be better getting a set like the one I'm using: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FG ... UTF8&psc=1

    It has the hex and Phillips heads you need for the Phantom, and more.

    You can use a magnetic tipped screwdriver (and those are), just do the full compass recalibration afterwards, including checking to see if the modus values in the NAZA assistant are back within acceptable ranges.

    If you plan to tinker a bit with your Phantom, a good 2mm hex driver is a must. (plus a tiny little philips as mentioned)

    I'm quite pleased with the Wiha ones that I have, they have a little cap that rotates, making it a bit easier to unscrew things with one hand while still applying pressure

    Sure don't think I will be putting anything close to my Phantom that has any chance of messing with it. Make sure to get brass o
