    So I found a new Part 34 body on Amazon which was advertised as a P3P body (less camera, remote, battery, and props) It was $290 new which seemed low but I figured I could always return it if it was the wrong one. Well, it turned out to be a P3A body as far as the label and silvers stickers indicate.

    Now I'm assuming all else is the same. I hooked up my parts to it, downloaded P3P firmware 1.7 rather than P3A and it seems to work exactly the same as it should as a P3P with the 4K camera.

    Is there anything I should be concerned with by using the P3A body? I know there was a difference in the battery chargers between the two models but that shouldn't be a problem here.

    The bodies of the P3A and P3P are the same. If you replace the gimbal and camera of a P3A with a P3P's you'll end up with a P3P.
    The P3P charger is a bit faster, 100 W instead of 57 W.

    Cool. Thanks. I can live with the P3A look.
