    Does anyone know how to remove the motor from the yaw arm and gimble arm? Is that magnetic lock pressed in there?

    should be able to pull apart from the other side just with bare hands.

    It separates and connects back together pretty solid but I was still able to separate by pulling apart the two


    Should end up looking like this

    Dude, I can't get mine to budge and I don't want to break anything.

    image.jpeg Try holding like this and firmly grabbing the camera body with other hand
    Or very carefully pry open with plastic pry tools or super very carefully with small flat head

    I just cut the roll arm and left the magnets together. Thanks for the help.

    If you were (or are) trying to get Part A out of Part B, I think it attaches to Part B with screws. I might be wrong though.
    But if I'm right, you have to remove the rear cover to access them.

    It seems like it won't budge but it requires a bit more force than you would imagine. Just make sure you pull it straight off.
