    That's what someone told me when replying some of my questions in an email. Is this really true? I've heard that the 9" propellers give more flight time and stuff, that's why it comes with P2. What are your thoughts on this? Is it really better to change props to 8"?

    Bigger props push more air.
    Reduce your props to 8 inch and you'll reduce the thrust it can deliver.
    Any turkey advocating 8 inch props for a Phantom 2 should be grounded.
    This is not a person to take advice from.
    Forget ideas of a parachute on a Phantom - it's a waste of time trying it and would cause more problems than it attempts to solve..

    The only way it would be even atteptible is if you changed everything in the phantom over to a larger quadccopter frame

    Otherwise it wouldn't work

    or kinda putting it in the middle (where is the DJI logo) and somehow fix it but wouldn't be that good

    That wouldn't work as the gps is smack dab under the logo
