    Hello guys,
    So after 3 months I had my first crash. The p3 fell of from the tree and one of rotor is bent to an extent that the propellor is touching the arm. No ways it can fly. So any suggestions of removing this bend? It's not cracked anywhere.

    Also, I am trying to remove the screws. All comes out but the top most one. I searched the whole market but in vain. Can you guys give me specifications of the screwdriver that can help me remove it?

    Thanks in advance. ImageUploadedByPhantomPilots - DJI Phantom Forum1439922909.607341.jpg

    Those 2 arm screws are torx screws so they have a star type pattern. [​IMG]

    Impossible to see with the shiny screw and bad lighting.. What I used to remove mine was a small flat head screw driver. Fits in from point to point and will allow you to unscrew it.

    On the bent arm.. well, sounds like you need a new frame.

    I believe I've read where people have used heat guns to fix a bent arm problem.
