    Finally got my P3P earlier and so far it's CRACK FREE, though i can see some VERY MINOR moulding imperfections but it doesn't really bother me.

    Any suggestions on what i should do first to "break-in" the new phantom?

    Anyway i'm happy with my purchase (so far) and i'm glad to be a part of this forum!

    Some claim to break in battery by not going below 50% for a few cycles. That is all, fly it. Have fun.

    My recommendation is to never use the word, "break" and "phantom" in the same sentence. :)

    Read the manual, read the manual again, watch a lot of YouTube videos on setting up and flying.

    Yeah i saw a video on youtube where the guy recommends to charge the batt first, use it till 50-60% he said to do this 10x.

    Noted!

    Thanks for the info. ;)

    I personally don't believe it and did not do it, If it cooks the battery I will just buy a couple more and looking for LimeFuel P3 in the future, I run several of their 6000s on P2

    Yeah I think that LimeFuel is a good option, I'll just do this "Break-In" process. It's not going to hurt and i think it's better for my own peace of mind to know that i did that. Hahaha

    Incase I experience some battery problems in the future, that one will be out of the list. ;)
