    Yesterday i crashed my dji vision 2 +

    The batterie jumped away after the crash. And it smashed agains the floor.



    1. How do i repair the batterie?

    If it is not possible...
    2. How do i dispose? can i have it in the house? Is there any risk it burns itself?

    It is almost new!

    The quadcopter is in bad condition, but about that i will tell you next time.

    I'd say that's dead....

    Best place is a local recycling centre.

    Must have been a really hard crash.
    I suspect that battery is toast.
    If you can manage to get it working again, it will classify in the category " unreliable ".

    As Dudley Moore once said in the movie "Arthur", "it's a goner".

    Maybe it is just me, but I would be more concerned in the condition of the quad copter. If the battery is in that bad a shape, it might be interesting to see some pics of the bird itself. Sorry about your crash.

    I will post an extensive review about the crash and my doubts. My mother language is spanish, i can only tell you before how it can be evaluated:

    Pequeña evaluaciòn de daños:

    1 baterìa inutilizada
    1 gimbal inutilizado
    1 cámara desconectada
    1 helice destrozada

    En el mismo cuerpo:

    Al intentar poner las hèlices:

    1 helice enrosca bien y gira bien

    1 helice enrosca bien pero al girar raspa contra el brazo
    (brazo dañado y doblado)

    1 helice no enrosca (punto negro) (hay que forzarla un poco para enroscar)

    1 helice no enrosa (punto gris) (hay que forzarla un poco para
    enroscar)

    Al colocar la batería:
    Funciona la baterìa puesta

    Al encender la baterìa en el phantom pero sin helices:

    TODOS los motores ENCIENDEN

    TODAS LAS LUCES FUNCIONAN

    Damage Assessment:

    One battery destroyed
    1 gimbal destroyed
    1 camera disconected
    One propeller destroyed

    In the same body:

    When trying to put the propellers:

    One propeller twists and turns rather well

    One propeller when turning scraps against the arm.
    (damaged and bent arm)

    1 propeller cant be screwed (black dot) (you have to force it a little to tighten)

    1 propeller cant be screwed (gray dot) (you have to force it a little to
    screw)

    By placing the battery ( a new one):
    The battery starts and works

    When you turn the battery on the phantom but helices:

    ALL engines work

    ALL LIGHTS WORK

    Wow, I would not store that battery in your house. To many horror stories of damage Lipo's catching fire or exploding.

    No Way!

    Lipos have a bad rep. and while I may not practice some of the cautions others take, a damaged one that can never be reused has no place in my house.
