    I'm trying to remove the top of the Phantom to install the FPV parts but I cannot find a small enough "Philips head" screwdriver to remove the end screws. I got the 4 hex screws out but even my tiny philips head screwdrivers are too big for the end screws.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Phillips screws on ends should be removed first before the hex screws on arms. There is too much binding pressure if done last.

    I think the Phillips screw driver is a size #0 make sure to keep good downward pressure when unscrewing.

    Take your time getting a good bite on the screw head as well. It can be easy to strip them out if you are to aggressive with it.
