I've spent a long while trying to work this one out and spent several days hunting through the forums here.
I'm a comparative noob and after a bad crash needed to try to get a number of parts for the repair of my V2+. And P2 parts are hard to find.

Anyone know if there is a post, or a chart, or database, where there's a listing of what P3 parts can be used with the P2 series?

I'm thinking along the lines of . . .. can I use the, say, motors from the P3 on my P2?  And then if the ESCs are also changed to match the motors, will this combo work on the P2 without more changes or mods? Or - can I use the P3 compass on my P2?


Anyone know if there's info on this subject - using P3 parts on a P2?

I suspect your problem is you are not typing in the correct name for your aircraft.  Your aircraft is called a "Phantom 2 Vision Plus" or "P2V+" for short.  If you try to search under a different name, you will have a very hard time finding parts.  

I have no problem finding motors and ESCs and compasses for my P2V / P2V+ aircrafts.

P3 ESCs are part of the center board - you can't get them separately.  

Hope this helps.

Thanks Mark. Problem is that I'm not in America, so a $20 part costs me $80 when mailed abroad (IF I can find an international seller) - because I live outside of USA.

As P2 parts are getting scarcer, it means looking for alternatives other than buying direct from DJI.

(Even the DJI agents in different parts of the world are crazy expensive. To replace 4 ESCs and match them to new/upgraded motors on my P2V+ I was quoted close to $500 over here in Thailand at the DJI main dealer.)

So I was wondering if some of the P3 parts might be interchangeable. Seems not . . .

The only part(s) i know that is interchangeable between the P2 and the P3 is the USB cable. Even though the props fit, they will not work as the P3 has active braking motors and this may cause a crash if the props come off. The P3 is a whole different monster.

P3 props will work fine on a P2 series.  But you can't (shouldn't) use P2 series props on a P3  unless they are P2V+ V3 (composite hub) props.
