Hello,

I just received a 'new' DJI Phantom 3 Pro from an Amazon seller.

Within the third party packaging, is the DJI box. Of the two clear circular seals on the top, one is broken all the way through. The other is a little damage but still intact.

Is there any way to run the S/N to see if it was ever activated or anything?



Thank you very much for your help

Was it advertised as "new"?

Was the seller a DJI authorized dealer?  If not, you may have no warranty and so you might want to return it right away.

You could send the link of the drone on amazon and maybe we as a team could identify it.

Hi there, have you powered on the unit and gone through the activation progress? Please leave the aircraft SN here, we'd like to check the exact status.

If you register the drone and it already has a "name" - it's at least been registered before you got it

Hello, my S/N is P76DCF25016582

Upon opening the box, everything appears to be brand new. I haven't powered up to activate or update it yet.

Thanks!

Here is the link for the ad on Amazon.

I purchased it through RageCams, and it showed up in a larger Sam's Club box with eBay tape.

Yup it did, and honestly it was 90% sealed but I was a little worried as one of the seals was broken. Could have been something that happened in the warehouse. See photos
