    Hi there... Newbie pilot here. I bought a used P3P from ebay, and will arrive in couple weeks from now. Just wondering if u guys can give me any tips to check the condition of my drones hardware/software before i attempt to fly it. Need to be extra carefull since its a used unit. Its not like we can trust the listing on ebay 100%. Thank you.

    1. Check for any physical damage Aircraft shell or on Gimbal or on RC
    2. Install DJI GO app on a mobile device
    3. Charge RC and at least one AC battery to 100%
    4. Switch ON RC
    5. Switch ON AC with SD card inserted
    6. Connect mobile device to RC
    7. Switch ON mobile device and start GO App
    8. Check if you get Green bar showing aircraft got connected to RC, if not follow the messages and/or link RC to AC
    9. Check for video
    10. Run motors without props, see any message. No message is a good message
    11. Check if you can move Gimbal up down by Gimbal wheel
    12. Take a picture or video and check on SD card

    If you don't get error message, all basics seem to be OK.

    Read documentation also so avoid making mistakes. Watch DJI videos too.

    Also don't hesitate to ask any question any time, some one will definitely help you.
