    Greetings!

    This might sound like a dumb question but am I supposed to use the 9" inch prop guards for my phantom 2 that has 9.5" props? Or do they actually make larger prop guards to be used with the larger propellers? Thanks!

    The Phantom 2 has 9 inch props. Where is the 9.5 coming from?

    Thanks for the response rilot. When I measure the props I got with my p2 h3-3d, I am measuring from end to end with a ruler and the total length is 9.5 inches. As I type that out it makes me think, am I suppose to subtract the measurement of the hub?

    I guess what I really should be asking is if I buy the 9" prop guards for my p2, should i be worried that the tips of the props will extend beyond the guard itself? Thanks!
