    I got freaked out that one of my motors on the P3P was mounted crooked. Then I noticed they all had slight angle to them. Guess this is one of the engineering changes from the P2 to the P3.

    Yea.
    Tilted rotors can be found on some designs.
    This adds tension to the thrust and helps with stability.

    It's analogous to wing dihedral.
