Hi guys , purchased my p4 from apple in march and the bird has been faultless through ownership, it has approx 7 hours of flight on it however I have noticed stress cracks on the horizontal legs of the landing gear , my question is can I take this back to apple for a swap it has never been abused always looked after and not really had a hard life ?? I would have expected a little bit better build quality out of something that costs a fair chunk of money ?

Thanks for your help

Have you any photos, there are moulding marks that become visible when a bit of dust gets on them.
Right at the top of the legs , screw hole to surface of aircraft ?

Correct please provide a picture
Edit :

I think this has a truth, on my old P3 i always handcatch, never landed with the auto land feature, and i did not receive a crack.

I had cracks in the same place at both sides of the one leg. They appeared after my first weekend of auto landings on a grassy oval. The battery was DOA anyway, so I returned the P4 for a new replacement from DJI. And I appreciate DJI having done that without any fuss...
