DJI Phantom Power battery door Upgrade-kit.

With this power battery door Upgrade-kit in combination with the Wide Battery or Foldable Battery Landing gear Upgrade-kits makes connecting your batteries to you phantom plug and play without the hassle of cable clutter etc.

Main product Features:
  • Easy battery connection for parallel battery setup
  • More battery-wire space when using single battery (bigger door)
  • Easy Installation
  • Is made of the material Strong and Flexible (available in six colors)

    • !See video and photos above for an impression and building instructions.
      (On Arthur’s Channel you can find a instruction video for how to remove the stock battery door)

    Package contents includes:
  • 1 - 8 gram 3D printed Battery door (In the color you ordered)
  • 1 - 1 gram 3D printed connector protector (In the color you ordered)

  • Not included but required:
  • 2 - XT60 male connectors
  • 1 - XT60 female connector

  • Additional comments:
    • I recommend that you first check if you can manage to remove the stock Phantom battery door before you purchase this upgrade (see comments below for possible removal instructions).
    • If you decide to go for the color white, than keep in mind that this color can become discolored over time (sun, dirt, touch etc.).

    When flying in single battery setup always check if your battery door is properly closed before take off. I can not be held responsible for any kind of damage that arise when using this battery door upgrade.

    Excuse the ugly liquid electrical tape. I have not had a chance to clean off the excess yet. Using a 1.5mm hex wrench was the best method of removing the door. The whole process only took about 15 minutes.

    I got my door today and installed it. I do love my new door! Removing my old door and installing the modified door was the easy part. The hard part was the wiring. I found that the easiest way to install the battery terminals is to do a bare wire connection across the battery inputs and then to run another battery connector to the Phantom itself. I then put some liquid electrical tape over the bare wires to prevent shorts. If I had to do it over again I would probably use a 4mm bullet connector to bridge the two battery inputs on the door and then run another wire directly to the Phantom's battery input. I think that the interior panel is something that is prone to failure due to a crash or vibration so I am not going to use it. The material that Shapeways uses is prone to smudging. I had slightly dirty hands and the door is no longer pretty. It might be best to order the door in a color instead of polished Phantom white. I have been waiting for weeks for Shapeways to print this thing. This door completes my Phantom!

    @mazajjee Hi, that's a nicely done extra feature. I like it!
    September 29, 2013, 12:47 pm
    Hi everyone! I have added a small on/off power switch to this door ! see photo
    September 29, 2013, 12:24 pm
    @allearth Theoretically it is possible, I have never tested this setup because I think it is too heavy for the Phantom which will shorten the flight time rather than extending it. but like I sad I have never tested it so I'm not 100% sure.
    September 13, 2013, 10:39 am then this can only fit/use two batteries or one at a time not three simultaneously ?

    For more info about removing and placing the battery door see this video from Arthur’s Channel on Youtube.

    @lenny7118 You can still use the battery inside the phantom with this battery door, there is even more wire space for it. The battery door pin will not fall out unless you battery door pin is already falling out. Also I recommend that you first check if you can manage to remove the stock Phantom battery door before you purchase this upgrade because in some cases the pin is hard to remove.

    With the battery door upgrade , if I wanted to just plug one battery the battery that's inside the phantom can I ? Also when removing that pin on the battery door does it make the pin loose when its put back in making it easy and maybe fall out in flight.

    Tks i will try that and come back with the result.
    June 23, 2013, 3:54 am
    @Bowie35 What you could try is spray some penetrating oil on the battery door hinge and let it soak in overnight and than try one of the two methods again described in the comment below. I will also continue to find another way but I’m currently very busy with work and closing my study for this year so I let you know when I found something.

    @KJMetcalfe This kind of cables are nog going to work, you have to solder your own connections inside the door. There is simply not enough room for this kind of cables.
    June 22, 2013, 3:55 pm
    Do you think the following cable would work in your design? My concern is the distance available between the female ends within the door and the wires getting in the way of each other.
    June 21, 2013, 11:02 pm
    Can u look for a solution to remove the pin so i can use your product. ?
    June 18, 2013, 2:04 am
    @Agtfoxmulder Thanks for your feedback. I'll look into it but can not promise you anything.
    June 10, 2013, 8:37 am
    Nice add on if you can get it installed. Have you thought of doing a version where you have xt60 on one side and balance plug on the other. Those that run FPV would find it easier to plug into the balance plug for powering the TX. .
    June 10, 2013, 6:32 am
    @Bowie35 That was my concern. I am having to return mine and ask for a refund. maikel should be aware that customers will be returning products which results in unhappy customers. The description states a main feature as "Easy Installation", but this is hardly the case. My belief is that DJI started glueing the pin in and thus making Maikel's doors pointless unless you wish to break your Phantom. Warning to future customers: Check to make sure you can remove the pin BEFORE purchasing or hours of frustration will ensue Good luck to ya Bowie
    June 7, 2013, 7:34 pm
    No i did not found a solution.......................
    June 7, 2013, 1:08 pm
    In addition, I purchased a black door and received a white one. Due to the discoloration that will occur, this is not acceptable.
    June 7, 2013, 8:46 am
    @Bowie35 Did you find a solution?
    June 7, 2013, 8:32 am
    I am also having a very hard time removing the door pin and further actions will risk damaging my Phantom. I have tried both of your methods and both failed to move the pin even slightly. Perhaps the pin has been glued in recent Phantom models? Without a solution, I am going to have to seek a refund. Sad as this was a good product
    June 7, 2013, 8:31 am
    I'm having a very hard time removing the door pin. I tried both ways without any sucess. The pin didnt move at all, even when using a hammer ! Do u have other suggestions ? Tks
    June 1, 2013, 3:08 am
    @chesdigital The following two methods for removing the battery door pin worked very well for me. Method 1: Take a pushpin with a flat head and cut of the sharp point and than push out the pin with this pushpin. Then on the other side the pin protrudes so you can then pull it out with a pair of pliers. Method 2 (you need a extra pair of hands for this one): Take a long enough thin nail en remove the sharp point. Let someone hold the phantom on it's side and place the edge of the hinge on a table in such a way that the pin is free to come out. Then use the nail and a (small) hammer to gently tap the pin out (make sure you do not damage the hinge on the table). Again you can use a pair of pliers to pull the pin further out.
