    Crashed it. Fell about 7 meters. Camera popped off Gimbal and slight crack on lower shell. I know I would need a new camera and Gimbal but what about the lower shell. See pictures. ImageUploadedByPhantomPilots1465153023.490958.jpg

    Or should I just buy a new P3A? Just drone no remote.

    If you're going to buy a new drone, get a P4 if you can.

    Don't get a P4 unless you have a pc powerful enough to edit the video.

    Honestly, by the time you get a new camera and shell, do all the repairs, you'd be better off buying a new one and selling the parts you don't need.

    If you have extra batteries and/or a case buying a new P4 would be the most expensive route to go.

    P3A are $799 on amazon. You are going to need a new body/shell. I bet most of the screw mounting points are broken off internally. It is pretty easy to do.

    Good choice. The P4 doesn't seem to be as fun as the P3. Plus at twice the cost.
