How to solve stiff / sticking DJI Phantom 2 / Vision+ battery

August 18, 2014

Sometimes the DJI Smart Battery can be a very tight fit in your Phantom 2 / Vision / Vision+. Here’s a top tip from a subscriber on how to loosen it up without making it any less secure.

i used “Plumba Grease”, – available from Amazon in the UK here: (affiliate), and a similar product from Amazon in the US here: (affiliate) –
but any silicone grease that’s plastic safe will do the job just as well. Use only just enough to fill the groove in the battery and wipe off any excess. Should prove particularly useful when you’ve got cold fingers during winter flying, as that’s been the time when I’ve often really struggled to remove the battery packs and get them out and they’ve almost felt stuck in there.

My “On the Kitchen Table” videos are mainly aimed at newcomers to multirotors, quadcopters, drones and UAVs, particularly to the DJI product range, and the Phantom line in particular. I have how to’s, product reviews, tips, tricks, hints and information for beginners and those in the early stages of the hobby. I film “on the kitchen table” to show people that, like me, you don’t need a workshop and an array of specialist equipment and years of experience to get started and progress with flying these amazing aircraft and enjoying making great aerial videos and stills. So if you have bought, or are thinking of buying, a DJI Phantom, Phantom FC40, Phantom 2, Phantom 2 Vision or Vision+ or Plus, or even building your own DJI Flamewheel F450 or F550, we can do it… on the kitchen table!
