The Outer Lens on the P3 that looks like it screws on. Is there anyone who sells these besides DJI or Does DJI have them for a reasonable amount. Have one that has a crack in it. It appears that it screws off and could be replaced. It is a small crack apparently caused by debri when landing near small gravels. User Error.

Please post links if you find one on Ebay or other.

I think you are referring to the uv filter that is screwed on to the lens.
polar pro filters makes screw on filters for the phantoms. Give them a Google search. Not sure if they are cheaper than DJI.

I just ordered the ND4 from DJI, so I will post my results. I hope it's something I can leave on and not have to remove. I hope it doesn't make the video too dark ?? I'm a complete amateur as far as manual photography.
ND4 may not be too dark, even if ND8 or ND16 on fine days.
Here's calculation: on fine days straight light Ev = 13-14. P3 is fixed to F2.8 (Av = 3), and cannot lower the sensitivity under ISO100, so shutter speed will be 1/1000 - 1/2000 (Tv = 10-11). Jello effect won't be obvious more than 1/30 - 1/250, so we need 4-6 step ND filter, that's ND16-64. Of course ND4-8 (2-3 steps) would be much better, and in bright cloudy day (Ev 10-11) ND4 or ND8 is suitable. Darker than that (< Ev8-9, sunset time or bright office), not sufficient light w/F2.8 + 1/30 or 1/60 sec, then ISO increases so wearing ND is meaningless (change stock UV filter).

I've cut Fuji gelatin filter ("ND0.9" means ND8 or 3 steps), put inside the stock UV filter, and works very good. That's small tip of film, so I wanted another stock UV filter - if I have two, one be clean and one with ND... but more expensive....:(?
