    To all: Happy New Year!

    I had planned to purchase a P3A last September but was concerned regarding all the issues re stress cracks, etc. that I was seeing. Put purchase on hold until now.
    .
    1- Are people still seeing stress cracks right from the new box?

    2- For those of you who returned them to DJI for repair, what was sent back?

    3-Some threads state that the new shells received appeared to be reinforced and with new motors. Are there visual clues to determine if this is a new shell and with new motors?

    Most (everyone?) people saw cracks after flying.

    The original Phantom with a new shell.

    You can compare the differences here and here.
