    We been lucky with the P2V's not having the issue's with this like the P3's but we do get them .
    I fly hard and do bounce a lot sometimes but have really never thought about looking for any around
    the motors . Well I have been seeing some strange behavior in just a hover like a little jiggle and
    my video's have had a left to right slight twitch . Thought of all the normal things and tried to fix it .
    Well with all the reading in P3 and seeing some of their cracking I looked at mine :eek:
    This was the worst IMG_2473.JPG and the other 3 had em like this IMG_3937.JPG Might look like a scratch
    but I assure you they are cracks. Have them on all 4 arms .
    Just showing ya so you will check them if your's has any hours on it . Mine has more than I can count but still we need to just take a look now and again .
    Time for me to order a new shell !
    ..This Public Service Announcement has been brought to you from the bird :)

    :eek: Ya know all mine have some like that but that one that opens just makes me wonder if that's not the reason I have the shake I do .
    If it wasn't for that I'd hit the ole superglue again but I can make the motor twist back and forth . I hope a change of shells fix's the
    left to right in my video's though as I'm tired of messing with the RPG .:rolleyes:

    Look what happened to me because 1 stupid jello ball cracked! Took me forever to track that thing down! If you remember, mine wobbled about as if it were drunk! All because of a teeny, tiny, crack in jello ball! So I bet with those cracks, the bird will act differently! ONLY 1 WAY TO FIND OUT! o_O

    Definitely update when you find the solution!

    I have not seen any issues with mine with just the one LONG crack, but is annoying as all get out! But I ordered a shell already, so looks like I'm doing it all AGAIN! At least no soldering, diagnosing, custom part building, wiring, calibrating, binding, testing, ect! Only a simple transplant!
    Arrrrrrrrggggggghhhhhh!

    Smooth like that! :cool:
