    I bought my P3A directly from DJI eight months ago. It has the old style 2312 motors. I am finding that they are not sold by DJI and are becoming very scarce elsewhere. How the hell can they obsolete a part so soon, knowing you would have to replace the entire main board to use the 2312A motor??
    So what am I to do? Buy replacement motors while they are still available with the probability I will never use them? This sucks!

    They are still quite easy to find. You can find links to a few places that sell them in my replacement parts list.

    Have you tried? Yes, they are available but limited. Since DJI is not making them any more, will they be available in a year or so?

    There is no shortage of 2312 motors right now. Nobody knows when DJI will be sunsetting old Phantom products. They never publish that information ahead of time.
