    I am new to this quad world. I'm looking to buy in with a P3A. I keep reading about updated "newer" motors in several other posts. can someone briefly explain what the motor issue is and how do I know if I am getting the new motors? Thx

    There really isn't an issue. DJI has released a new version of the motors mid-model (like they usually do) and some people think they are vastly superior. They aren't though. The old motors work just as well.

    I'm an expert at motors so listen to me. The old and new motors perform exactly the same, absolutely no difference. Also you have the same chance of developing cracks whether old or new motors. In other words, it doesn't matter which one you have.
