    I crashed my P3 (snapped the camera off and landed upside down on the asphalt still spinning and melted the props) and had it sent in for repairs at DJI in Cali.

    I just got it back and noticed that the hubs are still not straight (see pics attached). Is this normal from factory? I imagine if it wasn't that it would have been addressed by the DJI tech when it was being repaired.


    Please let me know what you guys think. Just for fun I attached the pic after the crash

    That's as-designed.

    I noticed that "tilted mount" when I was taking my P3P out of the box for the first time; glad I wasn't crazy!

    Are you saying that all the trouble I went through to shim my tilted motors straight was for not ?

    The offset motors are part of why the P3 performs as it does.
    And why DJI increased descent speed 50% for the 3.
