    Cracks in general are not a problem commonly experienced by the average Phantom owner. If it does happen to you, then send it into DJI and they will repair it for free. There's no sense in worrying about an issue you'll probably never have to face.

    That's good to hear. Do they know what causes the cracks? Torque? Impact?

    Nobody knows for sure what has caused the cracks. DJI has only confirmed the issue is not common.
