    Hi all,

    I had purchased online Phantom 2 around Christmas. It was advertised as


    The description makes me believe that it has to have the newest ESC and motors. The motors are 2312 according to this document:

    According to the same document my ESC which has no version number on it and has blue mark on the capacitors is not compatible with 2312 motors.

    The P2 came with the new RC with the wheel for the gimbal and 9450 props.

    Should I be concerned about the ESC's /no ver. number and blue mark/ or I am ok?

    I read a lot of information regarding this issue and I am confused.

    I found out about my ESC since yesterday I opened the shell to install my FPV.

    The good part is that the seller is listed as one of the 5 authorized DJI sellers and it is local.

    Please advise if there is issue that had to be addressed.

    Thank you

    P. S. Also the GPS shield is only over the gps module, not like shown on some pics online extending in the arms area.

    I had the same ESCs fitted to my P2 from new with the 2312s and the other upgrades.

    I have asked the question about the provenance of such ESCs a number of times, of a number of DJI dealers in the UK, and they are united that there is no problem with the ESCs and DJI has not told them there is.

    I had 25 flights or so without any ESC issues. I did then bottle it, and fit 2.1 ESCs just to take that nagging doubt away.

    I suspect that since the only difference between pre 2.0 and 2.0 ESCs, (and between 2.0 and 2.1 ESCs) is software (the hardware is identical), the ESCs with no white version label were simply the first off the line and were flash upgraded to 2.0 and fitted without relabelling.

    We will never know. I'm fed up with asking the question. It's like a conspiracy :)

    What is actualy making me nervous is the document in my first post - it says that this combo is not compatible:(

    You should speak to your supplier about it.
