    I've been thinking about all of the wonderful Motor/ESC issues with the P2V+ V2 and V3. I'm wondering if it is possible to install the E310 tuned propulsion system into a Phantom Vision +? I know I'd lose the LED's on the bottom and that is really not a concern for me. Any insight?

    Below is a link to the propulsion system I'm referring too.

    Why do you think you'll lose the LEDs? Did you read that somewhere?

    I too am looking longingly at the E310 system - I like it....

    I know I would lose the bottom LED's cause the E310 ESC's only supports an external LED which can be mounted elsewhere on the UAV.

    That would suck - I was thinking that LED would be in addition to the bottoms...oh well. There should be a way to tie them together by splicing wires or soldering additional wires to the bottom LEDs. I know LEDS take almost no power so it might work.

    The bottom LEDs are part of the traditional ESC which would be removed.

    Anyone want to buy a new unused set of 2312 motors and ESCs v2.1 (four of each)?

    Apart from the ESC's being different, is there actually a difference in the motors, both the v3 and the e310 are 2312 motors by dji, i would be surprised if they were different then eachother.
