    So after reading all the information on stress cracks on the Phantom I was assured by the fact I haven't put the bird under continuous heavy load, never used rotor guards and flying in the UK never been anywhere near extreme temperatures that there would be no chance of stress cracks.

    I was wrong.

    I have owned my Phantom two months and flown 75 times - 11 hours 18 minutes.

    This is not acceptable!!!

    I read all the comments on strengthening and modifying the chassis but we shouldn't have to do this. The vehicle should be fit for purpose and if not DJI should be issuing a recall and issuing a replacement/strengthened chassis that is not going to catastrophically fail regularly.

    I think all the talk on modifications is missing the point. We need to make DJI take note by petitions, posting all over their Facebook and their forum.

    If we keep putting up with this standard of build quality we will keep getting it.

    I know it's a lot of tech for the money but it should have retailed $50 more and been designed to last. It's also dangerous the amount of failures that are clearly happening.

    I must add I love my P3a which is why I'm passionate it stays in one piece!

    Thoughts please......
