Hi,

I'm hoping someone can help please. I am upgrading my Inspire 1 and fitting the Zenmuse X5R camera. I need to fit a new absorption board to accommodate the bigger camera. Normally the camera locking system and camera interface is already connected to the absorption board.

But the one I bought needs to be fitted. It is held in place by four tiny screws. Can anyone please tell me what size screwdriver I need to buy in order to fit the screws? They are very tiny and hard to see but they have a Phillips head.

I've taken photographs of the screws and where they fit. Apologies for the quality of the photos. Everything is very small and hard to capture clearly.

It looks like I need the sort of screwdriver a jeweller might use.

Thank you.

Damien

Can't see your photos, but you need to get a kit like this....

Or this one.
Thanks for the information. I was going to ask the forum this question but I will ask you specifically. Do you know the size of the screws that fit the absorption board for the Zenmuse x5r camera/gimbal,to the Inspire 1? I bought the absorption board, which is hard to obtain because DJI has discontinued production, but my order was missing the four fixing screws. I contacted DJI who gave me the following information: screws m3 x 8 mm. 2.0 mm hexagonal screw driver. I just want to make sure what they have told me is accurate. Thanks again for your help. Much appreciated.
 
This picture shows two M3x8 screws. Right side is a 2mm hex driver and left is a 2.5mm hex driver. You may need a flathead type screw.
A picture of where your screws are going would help with that determination. I don’t have my I1 with me at this time to look myself. Thread pitch may also be a consideration as I’m not certain of how many variations there are on an m3 screw. If whatever m3 screw you find, it does not thread in easily, it may be the wrong thread pitch.
 
Sorry, here’s the pic.
