    I just got a new P2V+ V3. It has the 9450 props, the new controller, but the motors do not have the DJI motor stamp on the sides of the motors like I've seen in some photos. They aren't on the DJI website pics of the Plus.

    Question: How or where can I determine that the motors are in fact the newer 2312/960KV motors, as advertised?

    Old motors have a black dot on top of the threads of two motors to match the black top props...

    2312 motors have the entire threaded portion colored black ...

    The windings are thicker and wrapped neatly...

    If you post a pic of the top of the motor, somebody can easily confirm for you.

    Yep. The motor posts are all black. Good to know!

    Ya I had the same question since some pics show writing on the new motors when I didn't have it
