[size=14.6667px]Just wondering how many have actually done the steps of backing off the screws and putting zip ties on the arms and flown for an extended amount of time with no cracks in the shell?

Impossible to know ... because most Phantoms never developed cracking in the first place.
It's a bit like wearing a necklace of garlic to ward off vampires.
Does it work ... or are there just no vampires around?

Although still relatively new, from what I have read, the cracking was more P2 than P3. So I don't think you will get many replies.

There's a lot of posts about Phantom 3's cracking. The search function on dji's forum sucks but go over to phantompilots forum and search for "cracks" and you will find a ton of posts from P3 owners. A lot of P3 owners have had cracks and sent them to DJI for repair only to get them back and have cracks again in a short period of time. Just has me concerned as mine is in for repair for cracks.

And a "lot" is still a very small fraction of the half million or so P3s that have been sold.
Reports of cracking shells are hardly heard these days.

Loosen the screws and lightly "snug" them. I did that with mine. Some may be over tight from factory and cause of cracking.
