    Just unboxed my new P3A yesterday and have yet to fly. Am now noticing that the vertical axis of each of the 4 motors is on a slight tilt from being 90 deg. to the horizontal plane. Is this normal?
    Also noted that the 4 anchor screws for each of the 4 motors has 2 that appear to be inserted further into the shell than the other 2, is this normal?
    And of course wondering if indeed this is normal then why?
    Also I seem to have the older motors.

    That's as designed.

    strange that you've picked that up, at the moment I'm flying my Pv1.1.1 (for just over a year and it flies perfect) but it was only about 2 months ago I noticed the same on mine, I was going to take a photo of it to put on this forum but forgot all about it

    I'd say it's fairly noticable on the P3A like close to 5 deg. not so much on my P2V+
