    I sent my P3A for repair under warranty due to cracks in the motor base. It came back today. Exactly 2 weeks after I sent it. So that's good.

    They replaced the bottom part of the shell only. I can't tell if it's the new shell design. Will have to pull a motor out to see.

    The only thing I can complain about so far is that they didn't replace the silver advanced stickers. So there is half a sticker on the top part and nothing on the bottom. It's a small thing but come on DJI. It's not so hard to do.

    It's charging now so let's see how it flys in a bit.

    A quick flight test and it seems to be working fine.

    Now that I hear they're turning p3 repairs around so quickly, that pretty much multiplied my chances of getting one by about 10000.

    Upon inspection I can sadly report that the replacement part is not the newer design and looks exactly like the old part. It does not have the extra bracing points.

    I expect it to last about 2 months like the first shell.

    Same thing on mine but they sent it back in worse shape than when I sent it to them. It's back there now and no one can find it. WTF!
