    I'm worried about how this looks even though my phantom is still flying fine. What's the worst case scenario with this much of a bent arm?

    I will probably need to replace the case I assume but I am scared of how difficult that is going to be... I'm sure there's plenty of YouTube tear downs right? Ugh there goes another $60... ImageUploadedByPhantomPilots - DJI Phantom Forum1445195169.658753.jpg

    You can pick up a shell on Amazon for $59 shipped here.

    Check out the videos here for step-by-step instructions on replacing the shell.

    If you are going to continue flying it -- beef up that arm a little with some zip ties.
    The hull replacement are being down now and yes there is good info on you tube-- Doesn't look that difficult and probably can be done in 4 hours.
