    Hey everyone

    I just noticed that when i insert the battery in the drone,during that process the place from the side where top and bottom shells connect, that place kinda opens up and clicks back a bit when battery clicks in. Which leaves the feeling that the shell aint so reliable?

    Anyone experience the same?

    Replace the shell. The internal standoffs are probably broken.

    Is the battery loose at all once it's in? If it's nice and tight, you might consider leaving it alone but keeping an eye on it.

    Or you could try to repair it somehow.
