    Look up stress cracks! Pretty standard but some have preventative tips. Find a local drone club and ask if anyone has p3 batteries. I had someone sell 4 of them for 70 each!

    Hello neighbor (NC here too) and welcome to the forum.

    Best advice is to read the manual, search the forums for tips & secrets, practice safely, and don't hesitate to ask any question you have. No question is dumb and we all started at the very same place.

    What part of NC? Western NC (Just west of Asheville here).

    I'm fortunate to live in an amazing place indeed. Yes I get to see some amazing sights in my line or work. Here's an article that I was hired to shoot some aerials for recently:

    Welcome! Kernersville, NC here and just got my Phantom 3 Pro and loving it. YouTube and this forum have absolutely been amazing for helping beginners. I've watched countless videos on YouTube that pretty much show everything.
