    I just purchased another phantom 3 pro. I noticed that this one has an off white gimbal fan. Most of the ones I've seen have a brushed aluminum guard. Should I take this back? I haven't flown it yet.

    Mine has a white fan with a gray plastic guard on the top. It looks like the guard is missing.

    The P3A gimbal does not have a fan by design.

    The P3A doesn't have a gimbal fan. The P3P does.

    My fan is black with a steel bracket on top. The model (P3P) is about a year old.
