Well. If my quad flips in the air and it crashes miserably onto someones car or whatever. What good would the support and warranty be? The controller board would probably be unharmed. How should I argue that the board is the problem? Very difficult. The warranty is only interesting before the first flight, when it's tested on the bench and it does not work. BUT if the boards gets cheaper it would be more viable for me to buy another instead of paying the return postal fee.
