    Im sorry if this has been asked and answered before but my Phantom 3P was plagued by the stress cracks around the motor mounts on one arm of the shell and I was wondering if I were to purchase and replace the shell myself would that void my warranty? Thanks for the help.

    DJI keeps changing their warranty page. This archived page states the following:

    "Damage caused by unauthorized modification, disassembling or shell opening which did not follow the instruction of official manuals."

    So, technically, yes, you could void the warranty on any parts damaged due to the work you're doing. If you work carefully though, everything should be just fine. It's a lot of work to swap the shell, but it's fairly easy to do.

    The following videos will give you an idea of what you'll need to do:
