    I know it is hard to admit to.....but is there a chance you might have an idea why the cracks have appeared. Perhaps a heavy landing, vibration during a very gentle landing or left in sunlight. Do you perhaps carry the craft using the leg as a handle. Do you always land on a hard surface or grass etc etc?? Just good info for the rest of us whose legs haven't cracked yet!

    Not a crack, per se. Connecting piece popped off. Result of crash.
    Yes, personal experience. Can be repaired, tape/glue. When popped back in won't get tight, usually some small flanges broken off.
    NOT a DJI design flaw or fatigue failure.

    I believe the OP is referring to this crack:

    U think ive crashed my aircraft??? Funny u dnt even know me. U dnt know how careful i am of this aircraft not like other ppl who dnt appreciate it. I actually bought this thing wid my blood n sweat. But anyway. Just check if u guys hv any crack on that spot?.. on all 4 legs i hv it. Which why its weird coz i hand catch most of the time. It might b design? But why did one fly off?? Ill check wid dji anyway. Also guys i had a battery wid a crack on it and dji replaced it coz its their design flaw. Think about the aircraft now .. for thise who think its not a flaw in the design.

    How about storage when moving the phantom... I mean do you out it in the car boot or do you travel with it in a dedicated drone bag?

    no cracks , there are seams where the mold was put together. looks like a weak spot where it could crack.... nooooooo. im almost tempted to give it a dab of super glue or something on that seam.....
