Hello everyone,

I just found and joined your community here. I am in Philadelphia and have been flying drones for just under a year. I am fascinated with flight and that has brought me to drones. I have in the past flown R/C fixed wing aircraft. I am also a licensed private pilot and have my Part 107 UAS license.

I love the DJI drones and have become somewhat of a collector. I own a Phantom 3 Professional, Phantom 4, and a Phantom 4 Pro (with a regular Pro controller and a Pro+ controller). Those are all in pristine condition. I also have another Phantom 3 Professional that flies perfectly, but does not transmit video. I may be looking at selling some of those soon. Too bad I found this forum after just selling my Phantom 3 Standard. It was brand new with under 20 minutes of flight time on it. I would have liked it to go to the home of a seasoned expert drone enthusiast. The guy I sold it to, promptly crashed it after one day, and that's a real shame.

Anyway, I wanted to say hello and hopefully I can contribute to the forums as time allows. I do a lot of research and get very involved in my hobbies. I'll try to post some pictures in the photo forum as well.

Fell free to say hello.

THANKS !!

welcome... I also about 3 months ago go the phantom 3 pro of craigslist with less then 1 hour of flight time for only $300. It also came with three batteries that all have less then 5 charging cycles, and it came with a case.
I got a crazy deal and ver happy with the drone
How did he crash the phantom 3 standard.

Hi,

Glad you got a great deal and that you are enjoying your P3P. I'm not exactly sure what he did but he managed to flip it on the ground. Cracked a prop and perhaps some other cosmetic damage to the frame (but not sure since I haven't seen it). I am assuming that he came in for a landing very fast and bounced it. Then it flipped over somehow. I'm thinking that's the case since he also asked me how he shuts off the motors after landing (which I had covered with him when I flew it with him).
