I had a crash and the front left arm of my Mavic Pro Platinum needs replacement. I have a replacement arm, but it is from a Mavic Pro. Will there be any problems in using the older design arm with the MPP? Or is it only the ESC firmware that is different ?
I can buy the MPP arm -- but since I had a Pro arm I thought it would make sense to use it IF it would work. I see alot of sites online selling a "MPP arm" but it is painted the darker grey of a Mavic Pro -- so I was assuming they are the same thing (other than color).
How would the MP arm short out the FC board? The arm is not generating any electric power. And all the wires from it go to the same spots on both the Mavi and MPP drones. I was thinking the MP motor may be louder, that is all.
The MPP motor could have a different amp draw than the MP since the ESC driving it is completely different. The MPP motors have more grunt designed for the higher pitched low noise props. If you have one motor drawing fractionally more than the other 3, you could get a brownout on the 3 remaining motors, or it could potentially send an error message back to the ESC board about an overload .
I think it's best left to let someone else be your guinea pig, and use what was designed for your drone.
