    Just unboxed my new P3A, and noticed that all 4 motors are considerably out of square with the plastic arms. On my old P2V the motors look to be perfectly square with the arms.
    Is this something to be concerned about? IMG_7856.JPG

    No, they are designed that way, I think it has something to do with helping to eliminate vortex ring state.

    Thanks for the quick replies. I'll go try this thing out soon as the batteries charge.

    When you first notice this and you are a previous Phantom owner it is a little unsettling to see!!
