    Hi

    I was flying my phantom today and doing all sorts of manoveres. However, the batter slipped out of the phantom (Luckily, it was only 7ft of the ground and coming into land.

    I'm a little concerned that this could occur again, needless to say and 300ft i dont expect the phantom to survive! Any suggestions?

    Are the clips secure?

    They definitely shouldn't just fall out!

    My battery is pretty tough to pull out even with the clips pressed so I can't imagine it falling out even if the clips were broken.
    And if you were coming in to land, why was the copter angled so much as to allow a battery to fall out?
    Most landings are straight down or at a slight slope, but with the copter being mostly level so its hard to contemplate how this could occur.

    Yes, it happens to me some times. I just try to be sure that when I close the battery door, the wires fit inside, and I can hear the click. The tab that holds the door is very poor.

    Are you guys talking about the Phantom 1? This is the P2 forum. There is no battery door.

    That threw me off as well.
