    Couldn't find answer to this doing a search. I have a P2vision+ that needs one motor and the camera doesn't work. Can I use the battery charger to charge my P3A batteries?

    No, as the P3 batteries are 4cell not 3cell.

    P2 battery charger is primarily to charge a 11.1V battery whereas Phantom 3 batteries are rated as 15.2 V batteries. Thus P2 battery charger will not have enough voltage to charge P3 batteries.

    The quickest way to enjoy P2 bird will be to replace the faulty motor and fly and enjoy without cam.

    Next, think about to replace the cam and decide.Is it worth?

    Probably will do just the motor and fly it at the local park for fun. Keep it within site.
