    Do you experience the same issue? It gets hot after I turn it on for about 5 mins. Do I need to worry about it?

    When the P3 is flying the props and airflow are the coolers-- if you are setting it on the bench and not running props-- a small electric fan to create air flow on the body and camera base are helpful and will cool those parts down.

    Basically it is just like a GOPRO camera. If you have had one, they get very hot and can burn a finger. They just keep on going and going.

    Mine gets quite warm. I put a fan on it when operating indoors. I think the only concern I have is the micro SD slot on the camera (P3S) might warp from the heat.
