    Is there a way to use a P2 battery in a P1 phantom using only the P1 electrics? Does any one make an adapter that will work? I know the P2 battery will probably not fit in the P1's battery opening, but I don't have an issue running it outside if the shell. Is it too much of a hassle to deal with? Would a better option be selling the P2 batteries and getting better P1 batteries?
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Simple answer to your question .... buy larger 3S LiPo XT-60 connector type batteries to accomplish what you want.

    The P2 batteries odd shape, much larger size, much higher weight and unique connector
    don't make it a good candidate for use in the P1.

    probably cheaper to just buy a P2 off of ebay or a P3s

    My self I made the phantom 1.5 and I run the multistar 5200 mah 3s and run it as low as 11.2 volts and it bounces back as strong as the first day I bought it
