    I noticed a couple of small stress cracks near rear motors on the arms of my p3a and was checking further when I found two larger cracks on the rear arms near the battery compartment. These appear to be larger than the typical stress cracks found near the motor mounts. Has anyone else seen cracks near the battery compartment?

    I was thinking the same thing. A photo will definitely confirm it.

    After looking more closely, I stand corrected, they are joints in the lower shell near where the battery compartment and arms meet. Don't I feel like an a.s

    No worries. Many other people have posted here about the same thing.
