After 5 months of perfect flying and about 130 flights, some stress cracks appeared on the shell under the right front motor, running from the screws that hold the motor.
I have been flying very carefully and never pushed the limits. Always handcatched and no crashes or hard landings. All flight uploaded to DJI servers.
I would like it fixed as soon as possible, but am wondering about the procedures and turn around time as I live in South Africa.

Seems some batches of plastic was more prone to cracks than others.   I also think flying in very cold weather causes the cracks.

I use prop guards and never had that problem.   Seems prop guards do help prevent them with extra support / dampening.
