    New P3A shipped didnt have badge or micro usb port door closure. Anyone know where these are or part numbers? I looked a while last night and can't find them. Thanks

    Just buy a replacement shell. You get the badge, usb cover, and a backup shell.

    Replacement shell on a new P3? No way, send it back for an exchange or a refund.

    Yeah send that back, pretty shocking from a QC standpoint. Did it come with that foam around the gimbal?

    I would call the LA # 818 235 0789 and see what they said first .
    Mine didn't have that foam Scotty .Just a loose camera .

    Yea, call.

    They may just send you them in the mail.
    This way you can at least fly in the mean time.

    That picture don't look like mine at all . Those safety pins are not right . I only have had 2 on mine . 1 in front and 1 in back on opposite sides .
    And the dampeners are not even in on the gimbal
    Wonder what's up with that .

    from the picture it looks like something it majorly wrong for a new drone. Dirkclod nailed it, should only have 2 safety pins in opposite corners. Looks like you may have gotten a returned users drone. Return for another one to be safe in my option.

    Thank you for pointing this out. REALLY. I got the replacement and honestly rushed to just want to fly again that I didnt pay attention to that. Great eye and thank you again.

    Thank you for eyeing that oversight for me. Learned my lesson to slow down and look parts over better before flying on replacement parts.
