    My friend crashed my P3 pro and of course he offered to replace it. But the controller and battery are ok. Has anyone bought just the the unit by itself. No need to have him pay for those 2 extra things since he feels badly enough.

    The price for the bare P3 is pretty steep.
    It's probably more cost effective to buy a complete package and sell off the excess charger and controller.

    Thanks guys. You're right I'll just have to charge him for a whole complete package.

    I assume there will not be a huge market for extra slightly used controllers. If something goes wrong, it will be 99% the quad, not the controller. This will create quickly an over-supply and under-demand on controllers with the price very low. Battery and charger should hold their value better, but could be used by the original owner after he replaced his Phantom.
