    Is the lens on my Phantom 3 Pro a UV lens? Does it screw off? Mine is very tight and I do not want to damage it.

    using prop removal tool apply light and even pressure as you twist the UV lense filter off, if the prop wrench slides a little as you twist you are doing it right. If you apply too much pressure the threads will bind. You can also use a rubber band or even just your bare hands if you use the same technique and let your fingers slide a little as you twist.

    Wrap the filter with a rubber band and unscrew. That's what I did and it worked great.
