Hi. Query. How to remove the lens from a CGO3 + camera. It cannot be unscrewed. Should I use pliers? Is there a thread? Is it glued? Thank you for answer.

There is a dot and it is not possible to shoot. Why?

The lens from Yuneec is glued and cannot be rotated. This is why new lenses come with a replacement lens mount.

Thanks for verifying. Can the lens be released? I'm afraid to change the holder. I just want to unscrew the lens. Replace the whole stuck holder and disassemble I'm afraid. Is it very stuck? Do you have knowledge?

@RudaR,
The CGo3+ came with a choice of two lens barrel types. One can be unscrewed. One cannot. You have the one that cannot be unscrewed. It would make no difference if you could. The screw-in replacement lens will not work with the larger diameter barrel of the lens type you have. And you will have no way to focus it anyway.
For your camera, the entire assembly must be removed from the circuit board at it's base. For what it's worth, I personally find it very difficult to remove at the base, and very easy to damage the circuit board.

So that's serious information. I'll take a good look and measure. Thank you for the warning. I have to work carefully and think. I'll find out what can be done.

@jannislh gave you a clue on removing the lens mount from the circuit board by using acetone (nail polish remover). Be sure to use it sparingly and apply it with a cotton swab. Work with it like shown in the video.
