With only basic soldering skills, no workshop, big shed or dealer support, how to do the V2 motor and ESC upgrades to your Phantom on your kitchen table when they become available.
Here’s a run through of how I went about fitting the samples sent by DJI to a Phantom 2, with some hints and tips I picked up on the way. Please note I will NOT be showing you how to solder – you’ll need to watch videos from those far more practised than I. I think we’ll call my efforts “adequate”. Next step is to wait for a weather window and see if the thing will fly – and if the V2 upgrades make it fly better?

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!
