Look at the bottom of your p4, does it have lines for the gimbal clamp or not?

Don't worry. It doesn't influence normal operation of the drone.

I took my first P4 back which I picked up on release date, and had it exchanged for a new one (because of a horizon issue). The folders on the SD ard say modified 17/03/2016 - so this must be on of the newest batches from the release batch as my phantom was made after release date.

With this P4 I found the following differences..

1) There are groves in the feet to show how the gimbal holder should line up (my orginal P4 didn't have any groves)

2) The SD card is now a Panasonic not the blue Lexar (I prefer the look of the blue lexar, as the panasonic is all black - doesn't matter as I use a bigger card)

3) The firmware of the craft didnt need such a big update like my orginal... It did need an update but I didn't need a cable on the side, it just did it wirelessly and only took a minute. (The other upgrade for my original P4 firmware sounded like it updated all the ESC, this one didn't seem to need to)

4) There was no protection labels on the front facing vision cameras.

5) There is piece of removable styrofoam in the case above the batteries that I did not have before.

6) The case feels slightly different, not sure what it is but doesn't feel as smooth (seems more bumps on the outside)

7) The locking mechanism of the case glides in nicely, where as my other one before there was a bit of resistance when turning it.

8) The camera gimball seems to hit a lot hard on startup when it goes up and down.

I do not have them. I wish I did. Occasionally I carefully put it on, only to realize a moment later when I go to put it in the case that I have some tension on the gimbal. I'm definitely always being careful, but I am have been trying to be even more careful!

I'd be interested to know about the markings on landing legs for gimbal clamp as this was mentioned on the release so to make them with out them kind of contradicts this!.

I preordered mine and it does have the markers on the landing pad itself. Two little marks on each pad. Mine also has the blue lear SD card. Now, if only I could remember where I put my gimbal clamp....

Mine has soft rubber strips along the bottom of the landing gear with two groves in each one exactly where the gimbal guard goes.

On your receipt it tells you the day you can take it back to. However, they will probably swap it out if your only a few days out of the 14 day period. I was 3 days over and they swapped mine. But don't delay too long, and you may need to go to another apple store.

Also check the apple store has stock before going, (check the website for apple and search phantom 4 then check shop availability.) If they don't have it in stock they cant replace it for you.

'Twas just a joke, I ordered mine on the first day as soon as I saw the "buy" button. I'm guessing that they had a large stockpile ready with both revised models in the "pile" before shipping.

I think the ones without the marks are more of a manufacturing defect than a revised version.

I have seen a few people on here who have received a replacement from Apple. Just curious as to how willing they are to replace them and how many questions they ask regarding the issues you claim.

Since you have had maybe the most replacements from Apple it seems...Ill poise the question to you also. What has Apple's reaction been when you return for a replacement? Specifically on your 3rd and 4th P4 lol.

Agreed,
Whoever begins the personal attacks shall be flogged until the attacks subside....and if they wish to joust then i am all in!!

Hopefully you know that most of us are merely responding to posts and then when some "Slug" decides to add some irritating comment with references to ones heritage/country or origin etc...it becomes personal...Frankly, those slugs that do this do not deserve the "salt" from my shaker....

If some reject decides he/she wants to start a "slang" page, then have at it, otherwise they can flake off like the irritating itch after a bad sunburn.
If their only goal is to try to get a rise (they have drugs for those that need that!) then they should see their physicians.....

Hi All,

My P4 is on his way...
So, I'm wondering what's the problem you are talking about?
Can you send pictures?

I bought a P4 at Apple on 4/1 and had to return it a week later due to firmware bricking it. The second P4 didn't have the stickers over the camera, but did have a later firmware. No lines on either that I can see.

Can somebody post a pic of the factory lines.
