Another little piece fell out of my phantom 4. The last time, about a month ago, it was an obvious top and bottom retention clip. This time I can't tell what it is. On a good note there are still no external signs of stress cracks. In fact, other than these little pieces, the bird looks perfect. So far the pantom 4 looks to be far stronger than the pantom 3.

That looks a lot like a piece of the bits that hold on the props. I suggest a close examination of them. I think DJI should offer those prop connectors as replacement parts since they are likely to get worn, cracked or broken over time and appear to be simple to replace.

The Phantom is a plastic bird,  so naturally,  it has plastic poop.

Looks like it but no. It was rattling inside the bird for a few days. Prop holders are intact. Besides, the prop holder plastic is far stronger stuff.

Thanks a bunch. It is going to have to wait because I don't know where I'll be in two weeks. I travel a lot and can only do this when I know I'll be home to sign for the package. I'm also waiting on a spare phantom 4 to arrive so that I can keep flying in the mean time.

That's what I suspect. Outside there isn't any visible change. As of today nothing more came out.
