    Okay, so today I made the mistake of trying to show off my drone to impress some friends (my ego became a little too big when I thought I had a lot of flight hours logged) and I crashed my drone. It was a low altitude crash, probably < 10 feet. I immediately powered it down, took the battery out. As far as damage goes (from what I can see) is the right rear landing gear cracked from the main frame and the right front arm of the arm for the prop is a little twisted with the light cover missing. After coming home, I was able to re-power it back up with no problems and even start the motors fine. What are the suggestions to buy new a new shell for the P3A? That link was what I found from the DJI website. Is there any schematics out there? Would it be wrong to try to fix it on my own? What do you think? Thanks. Will post pictures below.

    These are the pictures. It seems only cosmetic to me as I am able to power up with no problems.

    You can either send it in to be repaired or purchase a new shell and fix it yourself. A new shell can be purchase directly from DJI or from Amazon. You can find videos that show how to replace the shell here.
