Erm, just took delivery of my P3P and noticed all four of my motors don't sit straight on the arms.... No way was it like this on my P2V+.

Is this normal? I somehow don't think so...

Phew! I've been reading this forum and rcg loads but must have missed this nugget of info. Just surprised me as P2V+ motors were straight.

I saw a thread on here a day or so ago that spoke to it. Originally read about it in the rcg thread. Unfortunately, once I catch up there each night and then go to sleep, I wake up 21 pages behind again!

True, these pages are flying by now and it's easy to miss posts. Thanks!!

I wonder if the design also helps prevent a vortex ring state from developing and causing loss of lift.

Surely is useful but I don't like at all that motors inclination...

This probably help prevent a Vortex when descending in straight line because it would make it way harder to descend in your own prop wash, good thing i read this thread else I would of messaged DJI after getting my P3A in couple days, to return thinking it was manufacturing defects.
Do all 4 motors have the same angle ?

Yeah they're all angled. It's pretty subtle though and not super obvious with the props on, unless you're looking for it. The Inspire looks like it has a much more aggressive angle to the motors

Not to revive an old post, but this is very helpful to have confirmation of. I had a minor crash, and was concerned I broke my motors!
