    Well unfortunately I had a wee accident flying indoors with my new Advanced. Was in the horse barn that luckily had rubber mats on the floor. I was flying well and amazed at how stable indoor flying can be when I gave little to fast up stick. Before I could release stick I clipped the ceiling and machine became unstable and rocked down about 15 feet and hit floor and popped over. Apart from melted rubber on props there was no damage and machine is flying and filming normally. Brunt of force must have been on end of one arm and upper shell has lifted a bit inside the curved edge. A little white tooth is showing. Instead of forcing, should I release necessary screws and reposition? Thx Tom

    Yes. If that does not work, separate the shell and put it back together.

    There are snaps on all 4 arms. Loosening the screws will give you some play to snap the shell back together.
