In an effort to dissemble everything I own, I tried following this video:

 

I've given up on trying to remove the outer shell on the V5.

How does he remove the outer shell on the V5 so easily? Am I missing something? Is the guy in the video, perhaps, a professional arm wrestler?

Yeah unfortunately it is quite difficult to remove the outer shell, especially the first time. When you manage to disengage the first clip  (3:30 in the video),  insert a plastic lever to keep it from popping back. Do that for every clip you disengage and be careful, otherwise you might get nice pinch on some of your fingers :). Mine held so hard first time I tried, that I had to brake one of the plastic clips to remove the shell, although it does not matter because even the screws alone would be enough to keep the shell tight and secure on the wheel. I remember @Jason McNeil mentioned in one of the threads that he also rarely manages to remove the shell without braking some of the plastic clips, when servicing V5-s.
