    The one with the updated plastic housing and the 2312E motors. I don't want to deal with stress fractures.

    Thanks,
    Gap

    Depends where are you from?

    In the UK Maplins and Jessops have the new ones.

    B&H Photo NYC but you have to ask for it. I just got one there 2 weeks ago. Sorry to say I replace a New P3P with stress cracks so the issue is not going away. Go to Inspire

    gap, you would have to contact the seller to check which version they have. That's not a common issue, so it's likely you won't see it no matter which version of the shell/motors you have.

    I've got a dollar that says your state laws requires you to self-report sales tax.

    What does your tax exempt status have to do with a state law that requires residents to self-report sales tax on purchases made via mail from out-of-state retailers?

    If you're suggesting that someone apply for a sales tax permit for the purpose of avoiding paying sales tax, I've got another dollar that says that's illegal.

    Sounds like another topic for another forum.

    "Free Tax Law advice" perhaps.

    That's not true. There have been ZERO reports of stress crack in new motor P3. Only older model motors are prone to stress cracks. Doesn't mean it will of won't crack, just prone. New motor have ZERO chance of cracking.

    Buy directly from DJI will guaranteed you new motor version with ZERO chance of stress cracks. ZERO.

    Apparently you don't check the treads on here or Facebook owners page too often . The new model of p3's have had several reports of stress cracks.

    I Can't Believe it! MY "New & Improved" shell has a crack after 7 flights!
    Search this forum
    I would love to hear how you came up with the zero chance of cracks with the new motors theory . What other things can you pull out of there , maybe some monkeys.
