    Get a pair of needle nose, grab onto the top part and with the allen wrench turn it as you pull on the screw.. should come out..

    the camera balance is soooo much better now that I have done the 6 point calibration on the IMU and I took the lens filter off. thanks for your help Richard.

    I had this exact same problem. The first step is to buy a dog quality hex driver. The edgers on this are sharper and should do the job. I bought one (1.5mm) for £3. The dji one with the filter out is a disgrace. If this doesn't work be careful with the dremmel. Lots of damage potential.
