About this Product

NEW BATTERY OPTION: Compatible with HobbyKing's Multistar High Capacity 3S 5200mAh Battery which has an excellent power-to-weight ratio, long flight times and a street price under $30.

Perform a Phantom 1.5 conversion on your DJI Phantom 1 or DJI Phantom 1.1.1 with the NEW 40mm Battery Door v2 and a Phantom 2 Replacement Shell*. With this combination the Phantom 1.5 can accept internally a single large standard XT60 battery OR two stock Phantom XT60 2200mah batteries in parallel providing maximum flexibility and dramatically longer flight times. Just snap the 40mm Battery Door in the place designed for the DJI Intelligent Battery, and enjoy ultra-low operating costs and long flight times. (Note: This model is not compatible with the Phantom FC40 or Phantom 1.2. For DJI Phantom FC40 owners, check out the new DJI Phantom 1.5 FC40 40mm Battery Door.)

Safety First
While every effort has been made to insure the highest quality, and correct instructions, Brian Self Design provides the kit as-is. By installing the Fuselage Extension, you agree that you remain fully responsibility for the airworthiness, safe operation and use of the DJI Phantom upgraded with Fuselage Extension. Each pilot must verify the safety of their aircraft prior to take-off and maintain safe operations during flight. If at any time a concern develops about the airworthiness of a craft, it is the recommendation of Brian Self Design that the aircraft be grounded until all matters are fully resolved before flights resume.

Brian Self Design cannot be responsible for any accidental damage that may occur to the Phantom or parts during installation.

@devintegen - if Hobby King's published dimensions are correct, the dimensions should work fine. I created a 3D model for the battery to confirm the clearances.
September 1, 2014, 3:45 pm
@BrianSelfDesign So I went ahead and ordered the turnigy multistar 5200mah batteries you had linked. I also ordered a v2 phantom shell from amazon. This should all work together correct?

Hi cbreitenfeld, the P1.5 40mm Battery Door is designed for the stock USB/LED light that came with the Phantom. With a 4-pin male-to-female extension cable available for under $4, you can use the stock board. The DJI NAZA-M V2, in my opinion, just adds weight, bulk and cost to your P1.5 configuration. Here's the cable I was talking about: http://www.vetco.net/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=14146&gclid=CO_en7nTrL8CFQWQaQodAYwAvg Let me know if you need anything else. Thanks for your interest!
August 11, 2014, 2:13 pm
@BrianSelfDesign Hi Brian! Do you know if the DJI NAZA-M V2 LED Modul will also work with this design? I mean just the approximate dimensions. I wouldn't mind making the access to the USB port a little bit bigger myself.
August 11, 2014, 9:31 am
Hi Arios96, actually the wire you linked to is a 3-pin wire. The NAZA extension wire for the USB/LED is a 4-pin wire. I found a couple on EBay. I bought mine locally at this store. They also sell online. Here's the link for a 10-pack: http://www.vetco.net/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=14146&gclid=CO_en7nTrL8CFQWQaQodAYwAvg If you do purchase a 40mm Battery Door and you want to private message me, I have a few 4-pin male-to-female wires left over from a 10-pack that I bought at Vetco and I'll mail you one if you're live in the US.

Hey there Brian! I really am thinking about do this conversion to a Phantom 1.5! My only question about the process is the LED extension wire. What cable did you use to extend the Phantom's LED? I saw you said "4 pin jumper wire", but I can't find that anywhere online! What I think you mean is a servo extension cable right? Like this: http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__32758__10CM_Servo_Lead_Extention_JR_26AWG_10pcs_bag_.html Or this: http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__9771__Twisted_15CM_Servo_Lead_Extention_JR_22AWG_5pcs_set_.html If not, could you provide a link or the exact name? (Hobbyking would be great, but anything is fine too) Thanks!

I have a screwdriver set that has interchangeable bits in it. So to install these super fine DJI screws, I took just a small Philips-tipped screwdriver BIT ONLY and tightened it with my fingers. I did one at a time. Once I got one screw threading into the LED cover as far as I could finger tighten it, I used a pair of needle nose pliers to finish tightening it down so it wouldn't come loose in flight. Be patient. Take your time not to cross thread it. You'll get it. A few more thoughts: - Use gravity as your friend. I put one of the screws into the board first, then carefully steady-handedly used the wire on the USB/LED board to slowly put it in place. The screw stayed in place long enough until I was able to set it down over the LED cover hole. Once one screw is in, it's easier. - You could also try taping the plastic cover on the outside temporarily while you're using both hands to place the board and the screw. Hope these help.d

@PJA1 - Here's another shot with a closeup of the back with the USB/LED board installed. You can see the LED light cover on the outside, and you can see how the USB port lines up with the hole here as well.
June 13, 2014, 5:06 pm
@BrianSelfDesign I have an Original Phantom v1 that I put in a P2 Shell, Hence, P1.5... The LED board lines up with the holes and LED light cover, but it is so hard to put the screws in. What kind of screw driver would you use? There is no way to angel a screwdriver in there... How did you do it?
June 13, 2014, 5:04 pm
I've located a photo I took when I was installing the USB/LED board onto the battery door. Basically, the stock dome-shaped LED cover slides into the hole on the outside of the battery door, and the USB/LED board sandwiches it to the battery door from the inside with the two stock screws shown in the picture (one of the screws in the picture wasn't completely tightened at the time). This should give you something to compare with what you have to see if there's a difference in your USB/LED board. Keep me posted.
June 13, 2014, 4:59 pm
@PJA1 Can you send me measurements and a picture of your USB/LED board? There appear to be two different ones produced by DJI. You don't by chance have a FC40 do you? These models have a different USB/LED board. It should fit in without a problem. I suspect that your board is a different size. Send me the information first, and then I can help you out. Sorry you're experiencing a delay.
June 13, 2014, 4:43 pm
I bought this door for my P1.5... I have a serious problem getting the LED in the compartment. Unless you can tell me another way, I'm going to have to drill two tiny holes on top of the door in order to tighten the screws with my small screwdriver. It's impossible to tighten, let alone line up, the small screws for the LED. Please LMK how this is done... Thanks...

Here's an additional picture showing the 40mm Battery Door sliding on over the wires shown in the previous comment.
June 5, 2014, 5:58 pm
I took a snapshot here today. Hopefully this will show you how a parallel configuration looks. I have 2 Turnigy 2200mah batteries shown. They are a little bigger than the stock DJI batteries and the wires a slightly longer too. This gives you an idea of how the after market batteries fit. A 2800+2200 configuration is a bit tighter, but still works well. The battery wires and parallel adapter can put up a bit of a fight sometimes to tuck inside, so the extra space the 40mm Battery Door offers can be very convenient. Let me know if you have any additional questions. Thanks for your interest.
June 5, 2014, 5:57 pm
Hi, Do you have a photo showing two batteries in parallel configuration mounted within the cavity of the P2? I've been interested in doing this since the P2 was introduced but only now have I found your battery door to replace the stock door..
June 5, 2014, 1:00 am
Perhaps it's important to explain that this product is not compatible with the Phantom 2. This is for use with a Phantom 1.5 - a Phantom 1 where all the internal components have been moved to a Phantom 2 replacement shell. Once the Phantom 1's components are inside the Phantom 2 shell, you can use different batteries and the Phantom 1's XT60 connector and the Phantom 1's LED would be relocated to the battery door as shown in the closeup photo. The Phantom 2, has not yet been widely "jailbroken" from the proprietary DJI Intelligent Battery so will still need DJI batteries for now.
May 6, 2014, 7:15 pm
I'm glad you like the products. I'm not sure I understand how you're trying to configure your Phantom. If you're flying a P2 I'm not sure that you can parallel the DJI Intelligent Battery with another battery at this point. This product is not designed for that configuration. The P2 doesn't need the LED status light because it uses the 4 LED lights on each prop arm to blink the status. Please give me a few more details, and perhaps I can assist you. Thanks for your interest!

Heloo i boght one ofr this battery door My qustiion is if i want to use bthe p2 lipo and allso old p1 lipo, When flying the p2 what will be with the LED ? I love your mods!!
