    Well My stupidity crashed my pro 3 into a branch and it fell 45ft The damage didn't look extensive but I am under the impression I need a new Motherboard. Also the top shell is cracked a little and 2 prop guards are trash plus a few props but it looks good. What is the best recourse here? Buying parts or buying a new complete bird minus the camera and accessories and adding mine? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    A new bird minus the camera will run you $680. You can find a list of replacement parts here if you want to price them out to compare. It'll probably be a bit of trial and error to figure out exactly what needs to be replaced. If you open your Phantom, it'll be more obvious if anything has been damaged on the inside.

    I really don't want to have to solder motors and or lights, The body is cracked, motors look good, everything starts. I always get the ESC Error when I try to make the motors spin

    In that case, give Hani a call. He does great work.
