    Hey guys, my cousin just randomly went out and bought a P3, I know right he's got to much cash. Anyway he has crashed it twice into trees already so he needs prop guards, can you purchase them for P3 or do P2 guards fit?
    Also are the spare batteries available to buy in Australia or even ship them in?
    Thanks

    P2 and P3 prop guards are the same size. The motor screws are longer on the P2 though. So, if the props guards come with P2 motor screws, and you use them with your P3, the screws will potentially screw into your motors and destroy them.

    Here are two brands that are safe to use with the P3:
    Some authorized DJI dealers have batteries available right now. So, check with your local authorized DJI dealers. If none have them in stock, another option would be to buy them from DJI directly.

    No ... what he needs to do is stay away from trees.
