    That'd be a socket wrench.

    It's just a cheap 4 way nut driver, available at pretty much any hobby shop.

    You will find them more for r/c cars, and trucks.

    More importantly..... I notice that two of the nuts came off with a reverse screw thread (clockwise)
    Is the Phantom now shipping with counter threaded shafts on the motors so that the torque of the rotation tightens (instead of loosens)the nut?
    Makes sense but I wasn't aware that DJI had changed the design !!??

    The wrench is mostly used to change glow plugs in planes, cars and boats.

    ah wow,. I had heard about them changing props for the Phantom Vision, but didn't know they change around the prop nut/screw direction, unless perhaps he using special after-market motors?
