    I'm Skeptical about getting a open box p3a at the store. Should I buy and just return it if something is wrong with it ? I just don't trust its since its been returned. What do you guys think ?

    It doesn't hurt to try it out. Maybe there was nothing wrong with it, and the guy wanted a phantom pro

    how much of a discount are you talking about? you could always take it home, power it on, and go for a flight, then upload the log to healthydrones. You will be able to see how many times the battery has been charged and you can look for compass errors or battery cell deviations etc.

    Be careful with open box units. I bought a P2 Vision Plus last year open box and wifi module failed after 15 flights.

    Open box P3P $628. Most of them have nothing wrong with the same warranty. ;)

    I am thinking maybe i should have gotten the Pro or Advanced. I really like IOC and dont have the mode toggle switch on the standard.
