    I was fondling my new P3A (don't judge me) when I noticed a little bit of rattle in one of the motors. Video link below. I submitted a warranty claim but DJI is slow as balls to respond. Is it safe to fly in the meantime?

    Can't really tell how bad it is from the video but if it moves at all check the screws first and if not loose, don't fly.
    Just my thoughts.
