    Those certainly are returns since they already have stickers on them, normally wouldn't be installed until end of production.

    I have a hunch this is the trash bin for replaced shells & components. A lot of naughty pilots out there! ;)

    I'm returning my P3 on Monday for stress cracks as well. Is there anything that I need to know? I thought they would just do a swap, so they will actually replace the shell? Do I need to make sure that my P3 is updated because I haven't flown it in a bit due to the cracks?

    Not as far as I know stress cracks have nothing 2 do with whatever firmware u have but when it comes back from dji they always update 2 the latest firmware update whether u want them 2 or not!!

    How long do you think it takes them to assemble one Phantom 3 Prof, with all the necessary tools and parts they need right there.

    Well don't they just look so enthusiastic?! Half wearing masks, half not. Slopping the parts up onto the counter, watching the clock for 5 o'clock lol!! And probably making about $1.50 hr.

    thats definitely there trashed phantom pile. See how some have just a motor on them and some have none. Some have legs others dont. etc etc.
    about a year and a 1/2 ago there was a guy in ebay that was buying whole lots of wreaked returned phantoms from dji Ca. and was selling them as fixer uppers and for parts. and they mostly all seemed as if the were ones sent in for warranty issues and dji would just sent a whole new one instead fixing them.

    Well I sent it off today and should get to California by Thursday. Well see how long it takes for me to get it back. I also took some pictures of my Phantom before I sent it off. So that way I'll know if the shell was just replaced or if they will just send me a new one.
