    I had my old p3a exchanged because of compass problems. It was the old style motors. The replacement has the newer motors.
    Got the new one in the air today finally and wow what a difference. My old one used to get about 14 mins flight time taking the battery done to 10%. The new one just completed an 18 min flight and still had 40 % battery! I was happy enough with 14 mins but this is outstanding.
    There was a good breeze and I was flying it quite hard and high.
    I think my first battery had problems although it had only had about 15 charges and showed 100% health.
    I am a happy bunny now I almost feel an inspire coming on lol

    You are right, just changing motors, flying time will not jump up so much.
