    It's a gamble to buy a used phantom. I say gamble cause you don't know the exact condition of it. Phantoms have delicate Gimbal mount which usually start giving trouble if it drops from height or lands hard on a hard surface.

    Ask for the latest video footage file taken from that phantom. That might give you little hint on its confound.

    It would be ideal if you know the seller.
