    I need to replace the 1 motor on my phantom 3, which uses the newer 2312a motors from DJI (Buy 2312A Motor (CCW) | DJI Store), but I have lots of spare motors that use the old 2312 motors from DJI (Buy 2312 Motor (CCW) | DJI Store).

    On the DJI website they say they aren't interchangeable, but I don't see how that's possible. Has anybody tried interchanging these motors before?

    They are not interchangeable. The two motor types use different versions of the central board.

    means what ? What , if i chance it anyway ?
    I mean i have Spareparts from the P3S and now i use the P3A(old Motors) what if i change the newer Motor 2312A to it without changing the ESC Boards ? To me it seems to have some Extra Minutes because of lower usage of Power. Am i wrong ?
