Hello all,

Yes - the listing indicates it's a v2.1 although the photo is of a 2.0.  Nonetheless, either one would work for a P2V+ v3 with the 2312 motors.  Assuming it's a v2.1, just solder it in and go fly.  If it's a 2.0, I would do an IMU calibration after you install it.  

The difference between all the ESC versions is in the ESC FW.  The hardware is the same.  

The original ESC (before the v2.0, not labelled, some call it a v1) cannot be used with your 2312 motors.  But some unlabelled ESCs had FW upgrades and are marked with a colored felt pen on top of the large capacitor (blue, red, or yellow), indicating an upgrade to 2.0 or 2.1.  

Good luck

Thanks Mark!  Would you know if these motors would work in same quad P2 V+ V.3?

These are considerably cheaper at rough $8 each!

Thanks!  I ordered one which is all they had.  Wish they had more as I'd order spares.  Oh well.

You know what they say about banggood don't you?  When your drone hits the ground, it'll BANG GOOD!  

I would not put AM motors on my DJI quad.  MHO

No, actually not really familiar with Banggood, but I get your drift.  My P2, V+, v.3 had a rough landing last time out roughly 4 months ago.  Tried flying it a couple weeks ago.  Unfortunately three of the four motors were "sputtering".  So I was looking at lower cost fixes, because at $150 - $200 repair cost, I'm not sure its worth it to me.  And availablity of DJI parts for this drone is becoming scarce and still more expensive.

The sputtering intermittent start-stop thing with the motors means either the motor or the ESC needs to be replaced.  No way to know for sure without testing it.  But I'd examine the ESC boards first with a magnifying glass and look for popped or damaged mosfets.  If the board looks clean, get a new motor on eBay and test it.  If it still doesn't work, the ESC is bad and needs to be replaced.  eBay has both.  They're cheaper now than they were five years ago.  Good luck
