Dismantling the DJI Mavic

This is what is under the top shell of the Mavic.

The center board is the largest competent in the body linking the motors, compass, IMU, Ocusync, and flight controller all together. This center board can be removed if you un-solder several wires, but from peeking underneath, we won’t remove it just yet as there is not much to see.

Once the to shell is off, all you have to do to remove the camera is unscrew some the brackets and disconnect the power lead and several ribbon cables.

Just in front of the camera mount is the forward facing sensors.

At the back of the aircraft is the new Ocusync transceiver unit.

This is what is presented once the bottom aluminum heat sink plate is removed, exposing the visual positioning system and underside of the centre board.

Each new DJI product appears to be more integrated and less modular, making a much more commercially standardized product. This streamlines the production process and makes drones much more efficient to produce.

The Mavic Pro is available from RC Geeks.
