    I was bored today so i did an inspection on my p3 and found this. This is NOT going back to DJI for a new shell, i had enough issues with them a few months back getting a new mainboard.
    The location leads me to believe the screw is over-tightened and I should loosen it a bit. I have also read about bondic being used to repair cracks. Anyone else have advice? I have never been in a crash.

    Had one exactly in same place. Dont think its related to motor mount. I used 5second fix that my wife bought at Altmeyers. Works just like Bondex and have about 30 flights since i fixed it. Never got bigger or opened back up. It was $10 at Altmeyers.

    I picked up some 5 second fix at CVS. It seems to do the job pretty well. I'm not seeing the crack open up if I push on the arm at all so hopefully I am good to fly.
    Fall is coming soon and I'd rather be taking some pictures and not have my bird getting torn apart in California while the leaves turn.
