    I've been waiting a long time for this moment, but I have a possible concern. I haven't even assembled it yet and noticed right away that the box was not factory sealed and the battery box as well had the tape cut. Everything looks OK, but I wonder if anyone else has received their Phantom with the spring loaded Tx ( I like this feature) ALONG with the "older" 4 silver prop nuts. I was hoping for the "newer" 2 silver and the 2 reverse threaded black nuts.
    Should I be overly concerned?
    TIA

    Jim, That is not right. If the box was not factory sealed that means it was probably refurbished. I got mine off Amazon and it was brand new with the spring loaded remote and the proper nuts.

    Personally I would return it. New Phantoms are in stock at Amazon and they can get it to you in a day or two:

    THANK YOU for the reply and link! That's exactly what I'm going to do! I'll return it and browse Amazon.
