    For 3 dollars I doubt you can expect ultra-quality. It overheated, simple.

    I recently got two of those. Do not need any fires.

    Looks like a P2 in the pictures. P2 and P3 battery voltages are different.

    How do you plug it into a P2 or P3 since they don't have the balance plug?

    What dis you connect the wires to? Some LEDs do have higher voltage ratings.

    I don't trust my soldering so don't think I will try that.

    The photo is a P1. but the overheating came from the 4s (14.8v) battery in the P3. All prior Phantoms used a 3s (11.7v) battery.
