HOW TO: Remove ring from Mavic Air camera


#1

The ring on the Mavic Air camera always feel crazy tight the first time it’s removed. Here are some tips that should help you easily remove it:

  • Position three fingers evenly around the outside of the ring (so you can apply even pressure) like this:

  • Grip the ring as loosely as possible. If you grip the ring with a lot of force and/or attempt to use tools to remove it, it likely won’t budge and you might damage it.

  • Hold the camera steady with your other hand.

  • Push the ring against the camera with a little bit of pressure as you turn the ring counterclockwise.

  • Wear a rubber glove if the ring slips through your fingers.

If the above tips does not work, another option is to use the included USB Type-C cable to create a makeshift wrench as shown in this video:
