    So I just got my P3P. Was surprised to find during unboxing that my box appeared to have been dropped (one corner squashed in) and minor marks...

    - small faint scratches on top housing of Phantom
    - battery contacts showed ware on charger (before any use)
    - box lid open of charger component + torn inner cardboard packing section + dirty fingerprints on box.
    - grey area of control where mobile device sits had dirty fingerprints.
    - home button on control had finger print.
    - small mark on back metal bar of control unit.
    - mark + small scratch on gimbal. Gimbal cover half hanging off (not in secured position).
    - both legs of the Phantom have scratches. One has minor damage to the plastic (pushed in near the protective sensor cover)
    - instruction manual seperated from brown inner box (sticker folded over on itself)

    Hoping everything is okay..

    Did you order direct or from a dealer? Did you get a possible return?

    Bought from a local RC shop. I could have unboxed it at the shop but chose not to, thinking i wanted to enjoy the moment and take my time.
