    had a battery shut off in mid flight 20 feet above the ground and the phantom took a digger about a month ago. so I sent it in to DJI and they replaced the battery all 4 engines the naza and basically everything minus the camera... ill fly it sometime tomorrow maybe but im a little hesitant to say the least.

    anyways i have heard talk of new battery pins but not sure what to look for to see if those got addressed as well. does anyone know about this?

    I just plugged in everything to the assistants and verified its all up to date and im charging the bats now.

    More likely that not you have the new pins.. just look them they should be square. rather than pointed.

    Yep, those are mk2 pins. My original-style ones just have a smooth single point at the end, not crowned like those.

    Anybody know if this part is soldered or plugged in?

    Thanks...

    The former needles have been replaced with pins sporting 4-points each. The Red & Black leads from the old connector need to be unsoldered from the Central Board, then resoldered with the leads from the new connector. The smaller battery data cable has a plug on the end that disconnects easily.

    Sounds like you may have replaced yours already?

    I stumbled across this one yesterday, looks like the picture shows the newer version but you might want to call before ordering to confirm: http://aerialmediapros.com/store/phanto ... g-no6.html
