i would like to know, who is dji in your eyes, when you say they fixed your broken s800!

is it your dji dealer or is it dji china?

where did you buy your copter?

would like to know, as mine had a light crash recently, caused by a motor stopping in midair.

dji china tells me to go to my dealer ...

what are your experiences?

When there is something wrong with your brand new BMW, you also go to the dealer, not to BMW.
It works the same with DJI. That is the reason why they work with dealers, if they also have to do the end customers support, wherefore work with dealers? And the DJI company has to be 20 times as big as now .

I agree! But the communication should go through the Dealer.

Have you had your s800 and zenmuse replaced free of charge. ?

If so, then you should be happy as you were using prop adaptors that were not dji. Another poster here was told he would not get help as he was using the same adaptors as yourself.

Out of interest. Does your friend who helped you put the original s800 together still fly with the cheapo adaptors?

Not if you changed the BMW brakes for cheap crap breaks.

Paul here is Marowns friend.

Explain to me whats cheapo about the adapter ?

I really can't see what role the adapters play in the FOD that Marown had. Its was clearly a FOD caused by the GPS bug. If you guys conclude the FOD was from the adapters please elaborate what you base your speculations on ! Because if you have a point than the GPS bug might not be the only source of the FODs, which i personally doubt.

To tell the truth I personally don't use the Adapters at the moment, since my feeling is that there can be issues with the arms at certain RPMs with heavier props. With reinforced arms I wouldn't be concerned ! Since i don't have the time to reinforce the arms i stepped back to the originals. Selecting those that have the least tracking problem by the way for 40 Euro probs.

In this case, the dealer is responsible for you, in my case I bought everything from them directly in pre order.
