    Like the thread says, what are the differences between the two? Is the A the non-reinforced shell and the B the reinforced shell? I know the motors are the same.

    How to tell if you have old shell or new...
    Differences in the Shell:
    source
    There is 4 variants.
    Shell with full motor tabs and no X brace - cracks reported.
    Shell with full motor tabs and X brace - cracks reported
    Shell with pointy motor tabs and no X brace (P3 Standard shells) - no cracks reported
    Shell with pointy motor tabs and X brace and larger ventilation and motor screw indention - latest release, unreported.

    You don't need to open your phantom. Just simply remove the 4 motor screws and lift out the motors and have a peek.


    Differences in the electronics:
    source
    There are a lot of different factors:
    • Different power output across the P3 models (W323/W323A/W323B)
    • Different power outputs across r/c's (GL300A/GL300B/GL300C)
    • Different processing capabilities across the r/c's too
    You also have a bitrate difference between P3A (2Mbps) and P3P (10Mbps) live feed.

    GL300C controller has a frequency range of
    2404.00000000 - 2470.00000000 and power output of 0.3030000 .

    The W323B Phantom 3 Professional has a frequency range of
    2406.50000000 - 2476.50000000 and a power output of 0.5200000



    The GL300B controller has a frequency range of
    2404.00000000 - 2480.00000000 and a power output of 0.0380000

    The W323A Phantom 3 Professional has a frequency range of
    2406.50000000 2476.50000000 and a power output of 0.6120000

    I think the GL300B controller output power has been misquoted level somewhere. its not going to be a 10th of the A & C

    Interesting, thanks for the feedback. I used to have a W323B but I just got a W323A as a replacement from DJI...wondering if I should keep it or not...got a hold of a GL300C controller so I'm set on that..

    This is getting confusing. Is the W323B better or worse? Some claim the B gets much more distance. Some say the opposite. Has anyone tried?

    I'm going to run a test with all three real soon. I got my hands not the 300. I'll get back with y'all about the details.
