    This may sound stupid but I got a Phantom 3 Professional for Christmas and my wife threw the box out, along with the QuickStart guide, spare colored decals and the spare gimbal dampers and pins.

    Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement w/listed items? It sounds silly but I like to keep the factory box and parts to large purchases such as this.

    If you have these items you want to sell or know a place I can acquire at a reasonable price, please advise.

    Box less,

    I hide my boxes in the basement where she won't be tempted to toss them. :D

    dusty944, if you don't need the box, you can find the replacement parts here. And, you can download the quick start guide here.

    Did you guys see the guy selling a Phantom box (just the box) on ebay a week or two ago? Bids were up over $500 (plus $40 shipping) before the listing was pulled.

    The people bidding must have thought the Phantom was included (even though the listing said it was not). Nobody is going to pay $500+ for a box :)

    As a thought, I don't remember where you can find the serial numbers for the gimbal, lightbridge, & camera that are on your original box if you were to get rid of your original box. Because obtaining a different box the numbers on that box wouldn't match your Phantom if you needed those numbers for repair.

    I'm in St Joseph. I have what you're looking for but I'm like you in that I like to keep the boxes. What are you willing to pay?

    All wives through such boxes except their empty jewelry boxes.

    Definitely less than 999.

    Why would you "sell" it if you like it so much?

    It's true wife's hands can't reach office so easily. You are safe.

    Take a picture, save it and trash the boxes unless you plan to eBay them later.

    I have a box too. But op is not providing a price for his request... I think he may be hoping for a free box

    I was away... I don't expect a free box... I'd pay $20 or so plus shipping. Via PayPal.
