    I thought the main board was only $100 from what was said in the past by DJI.

    The main board is a big ticket item for the P3 - everything is on there.
    Apart from the top 3 items, they are all parts of the camera and gimbal.
    Looks like they repaired rather than replaced the whole unit which would have been a lot more expensive.

    There was a conversation a couple of months ago where tech support quoted $100 for main board.

    The only motors listed there are the 3 in the gimbal.
    If they had replaced the propulsion motors they would have been listed.

    Anything getting close to that amount would make me question buying a new one. Just like a car though.... all the individual parts always costs a lot more.

    Here's the thread you're referring to.
    Phantom 3 ESC Status Error. Motherboard repair. | DJI Phantom Forum
    Read it all the way through.
    It looks like Blade thought they were around $100 but there's nothing else to back this up.
    The price on the invoice above strongly suggests Blade was wrong or DJI have put the price up since then.
    Here's one ad for the part:

    image.jpeg That main board looks like a lot of work, for the soldering robots to build. What a crucial piece of the puzzle.

    I hope I never have to replace mine. ;-)

    Easy enough to tell if you got the new motors .. they have a pointy star shape on top.
