    Almost 4-1/2 weeks ago, my phantom flipped out on me and crashed.
    It's back in China, being fixed under warranty, and not due back for another couple of weeks - maybe more.
    I'm really missing it today.

    Here's some memories:

    That is bad to have lost so much of your flying season.

    At least you get it back in one piece under warranty; that should at least be a bit comforting

    'Tis comforting that I will get it back, fully tested at its birthplace.
    A small nag sits in the back of my head, speculating if it will be 100% when it returns.
    I've imagined it, flipping an ESC on its first flight back, and then off to China again.
    Or worse.. lost at sea the first time I fly over water again.
    "Deep breath... it will be fine.. all will be good."

    Thanks folks. Much appreciated. It's times like this I wish I was in the US. People have reported turn around times of 10 and 11 days. More like 40+ days here.

    We have authorized DJI service dealers here and I have just dealt with them and not had to send to China so we are lucky there .
