    Hi I'm looking to buy a DJI phantom 3 pro and I just have a few questions about this Craigslist add I'm looking at. He's asking 700$ for the drone and a 16gb iPad Air. The drone has a little bit of damage as shown in the pics. He said he lost signal under a bunch of wires and it fell. He estimated around 10 hours of fly time on it. Is this a good deal? Should I be concerned about the damage?

    Plus an ipad air for $700? Sketchy to me. The pro itself is $700+ by itself.

    Damage? You are asking for trouble. Look at the "post crash" woes people have had. You'll spend more than the new price difference in repairs and therapy.

    Why risk your hard earned money, on someone else's failure!!
    That bent drone shell tells us nothing, other than some visible surface cosmetics.
