    Hey all, yesterday while trying to unscrew my stuck ND filter, I noticed after handling it a small broken white piece on my pants. I couldn't find anywhere on the phantom it looked like it came from, but it definitely is made with the phantoms plastic, and has a smooth spot where I think it broke off from that would make it impossible to find a broken place on the phantom . Can anyone help me identify it? I don't want an unexpected crash as I am filming some bridges in nyc right now.

    Look like a shell clip, search the web for a open phantom picture and compare the bottom shell clip to see if it look alike

    Probably snapped off during assembly and has sitting inside. If you tipped the bird to change the filter it probably snuck out a vent and into your lap. I have used white duck tape others use cable ties to tie the shells together near the motors to reduce stress cracks. May be worth doing as your one clip light of a full phantom.
