    Apologies in advance for beating this dead horse some more but I am somewhat bewildered by all the different posts about this

    Few Questions:

    1. The stress crack is a known issue. Do we know what is actually causing this? I'm reading backpacks, screws etc.

    2. If this is occurring over time during certain types of flight are there any certain maneuvers to avoid?

    3. Also read DJI will fix for free if it does happen <good to know> but If its somewhat preventable then I'd prefer that route

    Thanks in advance

    Nobody knows what was causing the cracks. The problem is not as common as when the P3 was first released. I'm assuming that's due to the design changes DJI made in the current version.
