    As per the subject line, just got my P3S back from having the chassis replaced (stress cracks) and now it won't read or format any SD cards even the original one that came with it.Thought I would try firmware upgrade as I haven't done it ever, but can't do that without an SD card it seems. Any ideas? This is so frustrating!

    It is likely either the camera wasn't reinstalled correctly or something has come loose in transit (the ribbon cable connections between bird and AC). If your comfortable to do so have a feel around and make sure everything cable you can see is fully inserted in its connection.

    If you have no joy unfortunately your bird will have to go back again (sorry for stating the obvious).

    I sent mine in for stress cracks and when it came back, the RC signal was F'ed hardcore. I NEVER had issues with my RC signal unless I flew too far, but after the shell replacement, it was horrible.

    Basiclaly, I think it is totally reasonable that they F'ed something up when you sent it in.
