    Has anyone in the UK received a P3A or P3P with the new 2312E motors?

    What are these? Are they recent upgrades from the current ones for the P3P. I'm in the market for a P3P very soon, probably will buy from Heliguy here in the UK.

    I've now queried HeliGuy in the UK if the P3P is supplied with these upgraded motors, will confirm when I hear back.

    The main feature of these 2312E motors seems to be 'torque clogging;, WiKi says:

    Cogging torque is an undesirable component for the operation of such a motor. It is especially prominent at lower speeds, with the symptom of jerkiness. Cogging torque results in torque as well as speed ripple; however, at high speed the motor moment of inertia filters out the effect of cogging torque.

    So I guess apart from a smoother, lower speed flight, maybe it might reduce the 'cracking' of the arms on some people's Phantom's also?

    They told me that their P3A stock has stronger shells with the old motors.
