    Hi,

    I had a little crash with my P3A and one of the arms bent.
    So I got another body, so I was putting all the parts into the new one and when I wanted to screw the motors in, I found out that there is a different mounting system.

    View the photos.

    On the photo with the motor, there is the new shell with incompatible mounting and on the other photo, there is the right mounting system.

    Any idea what should I do?
    1) Get a proper shell, if I can still buy it somewhere.
    2) Buy new motors.
    3) Or I was thinking to just break these flat plastic parts and just screw it. Do you think that would safely hold the motors?

    Thank you so much for any help!

    all I know is that you have the newest motor style, and the old body style does not match, nor does vice versa. If you have the old body you need the old motor, if you have the new motor you need the new body.

    An there are 2 different main boards, one for the old motors and one for the new motors.
    So the only reasonable way is to buy a new shell for the motor type you have (new type).

    I must be very lucky as I have change several shells and never had a problem.

    You might be able to make them fit by cutting a slot in the four upstands.
