    The DJI S1000 uses folding props (p/n 1552 I understand). Can they be installed on the P2V+?

    The 1552s folding blades are 15" in diameter, so they are way too big, and they have a different hub. DJI claimed the 1552s offered a 10% increase in efficiency, but that doesn't pan out in testing (search on YouTube). The folding design also introduced increased vibration.
