    Is this space between props normal? Its safe? I change the stock 8 inch self tightening to 9 inch DJI props, this is a Phantom V1.1.1 and I just want to make sure before flying.

    Mine are 0.350 inches apart tip-to-tip. Yours look the same.
    So yea, I would say OK.

    Is there a difference in the P1 v P2 shells regarding major dimensions?

    You know... besides vent holes, battery housing. etc.

    Nope. In fact right now I'm using a P1 top on a P2 bottom.

    So then P1, P2 pros are interchangeable.

    Correct, all versions of the Phantom all the way back to the very first 1.0 are able to use DJI's 9443's props...although anything before 1.2 will have to use the non-self-tightening version.

    You won't go back to the 8" after flying with 9" (DJI) props
