    Attaching A GoPro type camera to my P2v+

    you can always attach a 360 stabilised camera like the Insta360 one. The footage is electronically/software stabilised like as if it had a gimbal.

    P3A camera vs Mavic

    They have same sensor size. The difference is the focusing system. The P3A has fixed infinite focus which is perfect for aerial work. The Mavic has variable focus and has caused user error issues from the start. Prior to the launch of the mavic, I recall Vlogger Casey nutsack (sp?) was...

    Black Pearl

    Try posting it in the P2 NON VISION section. Or mimic the actions in the clip. Looks like the 3rd icon down and first option is language. Once you get the language, look for the screen flip option.

    Copter dumps over on motor shutdown?

    This is what i mean by confusion. They should have said: hold down (descend) for 3 seconds when craft has landed. FULL STOP. Clearly this would have prevented so many flippies.

    Copter dumps over on motor shutdown?

    down + forward + heavy punch. On the flip side, DJI should have corrected it in manual. In the manual, the first option to shut off motors is CSC. DJI should have published down stick for 3 seconds as the only method for landing. They then should have added CSC as an emergency shut off mode on...

    My biggest fear... has happened! HELP!!!

    Yes. At the time, i think the P3 standard was only released for a few months so there was minimal reports of shell issues. i havent caught up since as most P3 users in that post would have upgraded to a mavic pro or P4.

    My biggest fear... has happened! HELP!!!

    Are you mechanically inclined? Can you pull apart something and put it back together again?? I have a background in Accounting. All i did was systematically take photos as i went along. You will find the hardest part will be unclipping the top shell from the lower shell. Just use playing cards...

    My biggest fear... has happened! HELP!!!

    There is no source. Just a bunch of people who got their shells replaced and noticed differences in the shell. Just lift the motor out and look at the tabs. If you have the tabs that a notched out looking like pointy ears then i assume you are safe.

    Professional Phantom 2 props on a P3P??

    Metal props aren't designed for the p3's motor braking. You will get a prop loss.

    My biggest fear... has happened! HELP!!!

    Its nothing to do with that. Loosening them may cause the screw to fall out. There is a batch with shoddy plastic. I got DJI to send me a 'revised' replacement lower shell. Replaced it myself. Takes about 90 minutes or if you know what you are doing. There is actually 4 different lower shell...

    Hi Vis Vest Testimony

    Doing it for years. Mine is bright orange though. Don't need labels, just make sure it looks old and scruffy as it build legitimacy.
