I’ve got another Phantom 3 Standard coming now.
The battery on the one that crashed was/ is not bloated. It probably didn’t have more than 10 hours on it since new. Hopefully this type of accident doesn’t not happen again.

Have you had any more problems with that battery and drone?
The drone is not being used now, no camera. It has been replaced with another P3S. I tried the battery in the new drone and immediately got warnings and messages regarding a bad cell. The battery is now scrap.

I have several batteries that have bad cells. I ordered a new batter from an online web site. It was a cheap aftermarket one but it works just fine in my Phantom 3 Pro. It was only $56.00. When I got the battery I installed it in the Pro and flew it for two fullly discharges without any warnings. I don't fly the Pro much anymore though because I now have the Mini 2.
