    After a few months of flying the p3S, I bought a slightly used P3p on eBay. PayPal credit with no interest for 6 months was way too tempting. Also thought of getting a p4, but financially it didn't make sense when I can get a P3p for 1/2 the price. I'll probably put my p3s with DBS mod for sale soon. Can't wait to try out the lightbridge system.

    Just check the firmware and upgrade if it's on 1.5 because of the battery problem. Being tha it's used, just fly it as is once to make sure it works. Also, if it has the old motors be sure to put on the strong arm supports, I'd do it either way like in my list below.

    Yes, those are the "strong arms" from UAV BITS.

    Yup and click on the UAV Bits store and they sell the CF Camera Guard and a few other things, worth checking out for sure :)

    Then there's these from Skyreat and they also have a lot of extras in their store including their cf camera guard also Amazon.com : SKYREAT DJI Phantom 3 Gimbal Saver -Protector Phantom 3 Ribbon Cable & Motors : Camera & Photo

    Or just fly it without buying stuff.
    Mine doesn't have any of those 'essentials' to stop it disintegrating or whatever is supposed to happen.
