    It has been sold on eBay for $800.

    After a thrilling month of 60+ flights of about 3-5 minutes each, I finally had a mishap today.

    I launched from a small park in Long Beach, Los Angeles County, CA. My dog tied to my belt lunged for the Phantom and even though we were about 15 feet away, I ascended too quickly and clipped a tree branch. The Phantom fell from about 10 feet up on to grass and rocks.

    One propeller broke, the battery was ejected and the gimbal is bent. With the gimbal lock removed, it starts moving back and forth by itself. With the gimbal lock attached, the quadcopter seems to be in perfect working condition. I tested all of the motors with and without props attached and took a few pictures and videos with the lock attached.

    I'd rather sell this as a whole package rather than spend the time parting it out.

    Please check out the pictures and the post-crash videos (a few videos in this thread and more on my YouTube channel).

    It flew perfectly during the test flights today - videos are down below.

    The battery that was in the crash has some dings/scratches and one corner of the plastic cage can be lifted up.

    Everything that came with the P2V+ will be in the original DJI box and B&H Photo Video box.

    Edit - My Phantom is now listed on eBay. SOLD

    Here are the test flights today after the crash. It works perfectly. The camera works great and the FPV is also perfect. So this is basically a "Vision" model now with the gimbal lock on.

    Here's the video from the Phantom's camera with the gimbal lock attached. I was testing the forward / back / left / right during the video.
