DJI Phantom 3 Standard

Phantom3 S modified

I Purchased a second hand Phantom 3 Standard in February 2017 and have just sold it as I don’t use it since buying the Mavic Air.
Everything fits in a hard shell backpack – Upgraded antennas on craft and ITELITE DBS range extender antenna ($160 new) on controller and tablet/phone mount, two batteries ($100 each new) – one probably only 10 flights, set of 6 PGYTECH Neutral Density filters ($99 new) for better video.

New body sprayed matt black – easier to see against clouds, (never crashed, engine mounts had cracked which is a common problem) new reinforced aluminium engine mounts and lots of glue to strengthen weak area – old shell has been fixed for a spare.
