Clear Lens came cracked, DJI wants to replace whole drone instead of me mailing just the Camera or the actual Lens piece that has the feature to be removed. I do not understand why I need to send the whole thing!? It would save both parties time and money i would assume if i were to just mail the broken lens and mailed back a new one?!?!

As above, a lot of sensitive electronics inside, best to have them all checked out.

Alright there was a miscommunication/ misunderstanding on my end. It's actually what they call a lens "Filter" that was cracked. We worked that out over email and they overnighted me a clear replacement.

I pulled my ND filter out of the protective case today and it was shattered! I ordered 4 different 37mm filters off of Amazon for $22. Seemed faster!

Be careful, the threads are not like typical photo filter lenses. I bought some, with in and outside threads, they defiantly don't work.

Oh.

Got my Inspire 1 a couple of hours ago. After reading this thread i wanted to check out my filter.. first thing i see was:


Was like "noo, shattered!". But turns out it was just some protective stuff infront of the glass. no damage at all to it. =)

Beware of cheap filters. Usually they are not coated and often have high incidents of glare and lens flare.
You get what you pay for. (Most of the time!!)
