    Out getting footage of ice climbing today and gps was in and out causing unexpected drifts. Long story short, got too close to ice when it went out and bumped the wall, shattering props and my P3P came crashing down.

    From what I can see the shell, at least one motor, the gimbal/camera mounting bracket and camera cord will need replacing. Might need new gimbal/camera as well but won't know that until I power it up.

    Looking for input about how to repair it on the cheap. Am I better off sending it in to a shop? DJI? Buying a new P3P without controller? Any tips or suggestions appreciated. 20160116_155433.jpg LrMobile1601-2016-102810832442923662.jpeg
