    Just received a P3 shell from Advexure, another super quick two day pick up to drop off from DHL, I'm impressed!. Also surprised that it came with a full set of screws AND landing gear, which are easily overlooked as they are tucked into the packaging. All in all I'm happy, especially as Advexure do not price gouge, that's a big plus IMHO.

    Curious how hard it is to swap over the internals?

    Hi, well the part no. on my box is different, P36557A0635. I was surprised to get legs as well as screws to be honest, as there was no mention in the listing. HTH.

    Thank you for pointing out the landing gear. I just got my replacement shell yesterday and didn't see the landing gear. I just went out to the garbage to get the box and I found the landing gear lol

    Glad to help! The legs were almost invisible in the cardboard profiles....

    the only thing i was dissapointed about is that it didn't come with an internal battery cage as that brakes easily when P3 crashes.

    That card stores the detailed log files, the only way to access them is to attach the bird to the usb port directly and put it in data mode.

    I got my shell in and have managed to remove everything from the damaged one.

    But, my dear DJI, did you have to snap together the replacement shell? Would it have been less efficient to ship it with the top and bottom separated? My fingers would sure have appreciated not needing to go through that again.

    I agree, not hard to have a sheet of paper between top and bottom halves with two rubber bands holding them together.

    Have we agreed that the shells come with the landing gear? I think I may order one soon.

    Gear came with mine and I almost threw them away! Swap took a couple of hours and I got worried a couple of times but persevered and am extremely happy with my results. Looked like a brand new P3P and flew like one.
