    hi guys and gals just like to introduce myself
    They call me digger and mad about RC :)

    Just a little question that I'm sure you have had many times lol
    I need to learn how to use your website so I don't keep repeating questions :(

    Q / I have the phantom 1 that I bought and all seams good when I have had some test flights
    Now to the question lol
    I can't find the USB on the drone anywhere external and can't see it in the battery box so I have to think it's not with it , is this just a case of opening the drone body up and is there a port to plug a lead in ? If so could someone pleas guide me to a site that sells them
    A big thanks in advance
    Digger

    I would open the top if you cant see it in the battery compartment. here is a pic for reference.

    That's the one I'm looking for bud , It's not in there unless it's in the drone where I can't see ,
    If it's not is it just a case of buying one and is there a port it plugs into in the drone , I know the end you have goes to the computer
    I'm just hoping it plugs into the drone and not soldered in ?

    This might help to see where they normally are. Again opening it up is not that difficult just be careful of your wires.

    Welcome to the forum Digger :)
    If you do have to open it look at this and be sure to use the right tips as these screws strip easy .


    Added / tried to just put link in but messed up. I always start at the ends of the arms and work in to remove the screws .

    Thanks for your help guys
    It really helped and feel more confident in removing the top off the drone , and a great point in not using magnetic screwdriver as I would have done so ,
    Big thumbs up and look forward to using the forum more often
