    When I got my P3P late last spring every other posting here was about structural cracks on the bodies. I never had (have) any but installed UAV Bits early on. I've now added a second P3P (my first fleet) and wondering if DJI resolved this issue in the past 9 months or if I should still install the UAV Bits for added protection?

    Do it. Why take a chance? They can't hurt - only help.

    Yep, Diego.

    There's still plenty getting cracks, especially on p3's bought this year.

    Found one on mine after 4th flight.

    Just waiting on delivery of a set of strong arms to get back in the air.

    DJI has not changed any thing drastically to improve mechanical design of P3. So keep up good practices.
