Changing battery

Post by Adie » Sat Jul 06, 2019 9:04 pm

So the time has come and I need a new battery .
I've removed the back but my set of cheap screwdriver tools are not small enough to remove the battery cover . lol
What size screwdriver head do I need
Rapid MK2

Usually a .80 or .60 blade will do the trick.

If the Rapide Mkii has the same arrangements as the C4 be careful not to launch the little gold clip into orbit when you release the screw - the spring under the battery is strong enough to do this, as I found out recently!
