    Nothing wrong with well made wooden props. I like wooden rotor blades on some helis...

    I would be worried about the nounting nuts backing out with the active breaking on a phantom. I wouldnt fly them for that reason.

    I doubt they would be quieter to any appreciable extent.

    THanks for the replies! I think I'm going to keep the stock ones for now. Content with what I got.

    plus if it isn't coated, the wood could expand leading to cracks, esp if you get a slight bump into one of the props... I wouldn't risk it

    DJI has probably expended hundreds of hours of engineering/design/testing on their stock props. The wooden ones look great, but why tempt fate?

    Surely you would not think that DJI just slapped on some props off the shelf and put them on a million drones, and warranted them ..... do you?
