    Cleaning the battery contacts in the Phantom is really easy, but how are you guys cleaning the contacts in the battery? Those are some really narrow slots!

    WD-40 makes a CONTACT CLEANER, black-yellow can, it is safe to use on plastic, so won't hurt anything, I give mine a spray once a week. The spray evaporates instantly, with no residue. There are other brands, just MAKE SURE it is PLASTIC SAFE! Couple quick squirts, and done!

    Take care, Fly safe.

    Heck, the stick of the q-tip is way too big, let alone the stick with cotton on the end.

    Ah, the rectangle slots. Just spray them with something like DeoxIT.
