Introduction: 350 QX Battery Door Modification

Picture of 350 QX Battery Door Modification

First let me thank all of you for the opportunity to be featured here on Instrctables!

I recently purchased a 350 QX3 AP Combo. Last night I heard a strange noise while flying and noticed an object falling from the sky.

Low and behold it was the battery door to my QX. I did some research and found this is a common issue.

This is a simple inexpensive solution to correct the problem.

Step 1: Things You Will Need

Scissors
3/4" Velcro
E 6000 Glue

Step 2: Trim to Fit

Simply line up Velcro on the edge of the QX and cut.

Step 3: Glue, Position and Dry

Spread a very thin layer of E6000 glue on the back of the trimmed Velcro as so no excess squeezes out. Place in desired location and let sit.

Step 4: Trim Reinforcement Strip

Flip Velcro upside-down so it doesn't stick while you are positioning reinforcement strip, and cut it.

Step 5: Finished

And just like that you have an easily removable battery door reinforcement

It's not often I need to bond things forever, but when I do, I use E6000.
