    I was flying today and looked at the motors and noticed a bunch of cracks right below one of the motors on my p3 pro. All of the other motors are fine.

    I have very unstable PH3A and finally found out why

    I thought it was an issue with the latest firmware. I tried everything and I mean everything to get it stable. Then on the last test flight it revealed itself. Finding no issues with settings that helped I looked for stress cracks and found none until now. Looking for answers on stability many...

    Cracks on top of batteries

    Greetings All, I went out flying last weekend, and noticed that all three of my P4 batteries have small cracks just above the 4th LED, next to the power button. This is the first time I've noticed them, and all three batteries are less than one year old. I've only got roughly 15 hours on each...

    Crack in P3P Underside

    Hi All, I bought a "Used" P3P from Maplins, UK about a month ago. I checked it over very carefully before buying and it, and it looked as new. About 10 flights later I found this excellent Forum and all the posts about cracks, so out came the magnifying glass! Sure enough, I found a really thin...

    Remote Control 1 antenna broke & shell cracks

    One of the antennas has been loose for a few months & has now finally come away from the remote housing - a small piece of plastic rattles around in the remote. Also I've had 2 small cracks in the rear arms (for also a few months) so I'm biting the bullet & sending them both off to DJI for...

    SUBFRAME: pros and cons?

    Very interested in avoiding stress cracks. I've gotten the strong arms from this same company, but is that a permanent or temporary fix? Is a subframe worth getting? Does it affect the P3's performance at all? I've seen it mentioned in other threads.

    Can I replace a shell myself without voiding warranty?

    Im sorry if this has been asked and answered before but my Phantom 3P was plagued by the stress cracks around the motor mounts on one arm of the shell and I was wondering if I were to purchase and replace the shell myself would that void my warranty? Thanks for the help.

    I finally got the dreaded stress cracks.

    I bought my Phantom 3 Professional the week that it came out back in the beginning of the year. When I heard about the stress crack thing I made it a habit of checking my phantom before and after each flight. The weird thing is they weren't there after my last flight and I went to check before I...

    Hate to add another crack thread

    But these look different than what others are reporting. They don't look fatal, but... This is a 2 week old unit with 1.5 hours of flight time, no crashes, not even a hard landing. It is a new unit with the new shell and new motors.

    The cracks keep coming!

    After 7 flights I have cracks under 3 of my motor mounts. P3P is just 2 weeks old. Is this just the way it is going to be? Get cracks send it back and wait? Any good thoughts on self repairs or don't buy another one? DJI if you're reading, pick a finger, I did not spend my hard earned cash to...

    Cracking the P3 crack

    I was thinking (being in manufacturing myself) there could be a few reasons for the cracking problem on the P3. - Flight fatigue and stress over time - Off Balance motor due to rotor damage But look at this, a FLIR image of a P3 after about 1 minute of hovering Heat buildup from the motor...
