Введение

Use this guide to replace an Electronic Speed Controller (ESC) in your DJI Phantom Drone. The ESC receives power from the central board, and a PWM control signal from the flight controller. There is one ESC for each motor, for a total of four. Removing the ESC requires soldering.

Pull the two halves of the XT60 power connector apart. It's a tight fit, so be careful not to hit your drone or yank on the cables when it releases!

Lift up on the top portion of the shell and set it on its side. Do not attempt to fully remove the case. The GPS and Magnetometer cables connect the top shell to the rest of the Phantom, be careful not to stress or break these cables. Do not attempt to fully remove the case.

On the Phantom FCP40 (essentially a Phantom 1), the GPS cable connects directly to the Naza controller box, not to the board as shown here. Also the compass (magnetometer) is connected to the main board, not the GPS unit in the top shell, so you don't need to remove it to remove the top shell.

  • Be careful not to melt the plastic case bottom shell with your soldering iron or damage any electronic components.

  • When you're reassembling, solder the motor leads back in their original order. This may be different from the picture. Motors on arms across from each other have the same color order, so check the opposite arm for reference.

Unplug the ESC signal cable from the flight controller. You may need to remove other ESC signal cables next to your desired ESC's cable. Be sure to note which socket these cables go back into.

Remove the two Phillips #0 screws securing the ESC. The clear plastic LED light cover may fall off after removing these screws. If it doesn't, remove it so you don't lose it. The clear plastic LED light cover may fall off after removing these screws. If it doesn't, remove it so you don't lose it.

Know where I can find a Phantom 1 replacement ESC? DJI says they don’t service them anymore, and I am having a hard time finding them online.
